    Very good elementary school. The administration has made every effort to group some teachers into 'team teaching' so that those students who are capable of accelerated learning have an option while those who struggle can be given the extra time to learn something new. The teachers seem very devoted to their students. Very good balance of male teachers versus female teachers. String lessons are offered starting in 3rd grade though my 5th grader started just this year. Parents are welcome to get as involved as they want -- volunteers are always encouraged to come into the classroom.
