    Very dedicated parent group. Great teachers & volunteers. Students are treated with kindness respect. My experiences with my children have all been good. District needs to upgrade the buildings though.

    Fantastic school - and fantastic parent group! The other reviewers so obviously have not gotten involved in the school in ANY way. I would take this one over CENTRAL any day.
