    The teachers and the rest of the staff are wonderful. If your child is struggling in a subject they have all the extra programs to help them. The PTA is like no other. They do so much for the kids. I like the school so much I now work in the lunch room. Great school!

    My son is only in first grade so I can't really discuss anything long-term but thus far his experience has been great. The teachers he has had thus far have been very involved with him and always open to questions and concerns from us. The principal is fantastic-involved and personable. We have only had one issue which we had to take to her and she addressed it right away. This school goes on a rotation basis for 'special classes' such as gym art computer etc. Thus far my son has loved all of these teachers also. I rated extracurricular activities as I did only because we have not had much opportunity to get involved within these first two years.

    More parent involvement than any school I've encountered. Excellent programs and teachers. We are extremely pleased with our son's education from this school. They are welcome to parent's suggestions and work well with the parents with any issues. There are extracurricular activites for the kids and again are wonderful. We could not be happier.
