    How would you think your child should be doing his homework? How long do you think it takes a NORMAL child to do his or her homework? With my child it is no time at all he takes 2 minutes EVERYDAY to do his homework and he is a straight A student! His homework is not even complicated enough to give him a challenge at home! My child has stated to me that he is so utterly bored with his education he decides to NOT PAY ATTENTION to his teachers and so forth! Now is that any way for a child to feel in school? Not in MY opinion..... My child's education is much more important than coloring everyday and watching movies in classrooms. THAT is not educational at all it is more like a glorified babysitter getting paid to watch your children.. give them something to distract them instead of teaching them how to do math or keep your children challenged enough to give them a HIGHER education. With that said in this review i would suggest that you re-evaluate where your children go to school in this county!

    This school is a joke. The teacher hand notes from year to year to let the following years teacher who the good and bad students are therefore a biased opinion is formed and the student ends up on the naughty list before he re-enters the new year! I strongly recommend this school flat out gets reviewed thoroughly by the school board because i have found numerous parents who feel the same way i do. THERE IS NO REAL EDUCATION VALUE AT ALL (SHAPES COLORING AND MOVIES EVERYDAY IS NOT EDUCATION). OUR CHILD HAS A PROBLEM WITH ATTENTION BECAUSE HE IS TIRED OF WATCHING TV! HE IS BORED WITH COLORING!SHAPES DO I REALLY NEED TO COMMENT! IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR CHILD RUN FOR THE HILLS IF YOU CONSIDER THIS SCHOOL!

    I seriously hope someone reviews these reviews and takes my advice on this matter. This school is not a school its more like daycare! Not even a good daycare a bad one. I can't wait for this school year to end so i can pulled my child out and take him somewhere serious about education.I know that salaries for teachers are bad but should the children suffer!

    worse school ever. Did not know that watching movies everyday was acceptable especially in kinder. If you want your child taught the same way everyday and do not want the best for your child then this school is for you. The last month of school the principle was not outside helping with kids being dropped.

    Oh my goshh!!! Can't ask for anything better!!Its just the best school the school building and rooms stay sparkly clean all the time!My daughter justtt loves her teacher Ms Fleming.I love that the teachers get so involved with all the kids activities like dress up in pajamas for pajama party and like a princess for the princess ball.It is just amazing!Parents get a chance to involve in the activities too which is quite exciting...My daughter is so sad she will have to go to the next grade this year I am pretty sure its going to be another great teacher for her in the next grade too!But we will all miss Ms Fleming!

    My twins boys have completed K-2 and have had an exceptional educational experience at this school. The assistant principal is an excellent role model and an up and coming leader. Special services in OT and Speech are provided by highly qualified experienced and caring professionals. The boys' teachers are highly credentialed experienced and dedicated educators. There are several male teachers in the school and they are positive male role models. The resource officer is a very personable pofessional.

    Academic Programs are really good but when it comes to discipline. I go to pick up my child and never know where the class is. The office staff are somewhat rude and unhelpful. I am very dissatisfied with this school and the way things are handled. The principal takes sides with the teachers.

    This school is fantastic! Both of my children completely K-2 here and loved it. Ms. Berrier is exceptional! She knows all of the 850 children here and looks at their individual needs. I have yet to find a better principal-certainly not one that cares more. Every teacher has been terrific. My sons couls not have asked for a better experience.

I am grateful this school has gotten him to work well in school and I am proud that he remains on the Honor Roll for the third year! Thanks Mrs. Berrier Ms. Christy Mrs. Blair and Mr. Jason! parent of a secopnd grader 2005-2006

    My son is going into the second grade. Both years he has had the most wonderful caring and truling genuine teachers. He needed a little extra help in first grade so his teacher took time out two days a week to help him in every way she could. I could not be happier with the teacher he has had so far. They genuinely care and are out to help each child. Thank you to Mrs. Allison Cummings and Mrs. Lori Watson for all you done for us. We love you both.
