    My daughter's teachers did not know their subject areas and were unskilled at teaching to a variety of student abilities. When we tried to change our child's class the principal was at first inaccessible then unresponsive. We had the feeling that the principal really did not care about our child and didn't supervise her teachers either.

    Our experience was unsatisfactory. The principal was not accessible. Communication was poor. Teaching staff is unpredictable we had one teacher who worked hard; another who didn't know what she was supposed to teach (only science and math).

    My daughter has been here since she started 'real' school. She got a great foundation at this school and her first report card from first grade proves that with the honor roll. She is loving all of the teachers and the computer lab art music and even P.E. I have no doubt she will continue on her way and keep up with the good grades. I applaud the school for being so great and the teachers great job at helping the kids reach their goals.

    I don't really like the way we have to pick up our kids now. I was told it was for saftey but I don't see any real difference except the parents are now rushing the kids and you can't see where your child is. Anyone can pick up any child and leave with them. Otherwise I have no complaints or concerns with the school. My son thinks it is great and he has loved both his K and 1st grade teachers.
