    I had two of my children that attended Donald P. Sutherland school and it has proven to be an excellent school. It's enviorment is well organized and friendly a place that is great for kids. Although this school is lacking diversity it is still a good school. The children come out to be well rounded and highly capable individuals. They emphasize extracarricular activities such as basketball baseball softball and swimming. Parent envolement is encouraged and well facilitated. Parents are allowed to chaperon feild trips among other things such as helping out at annual school events. Very good school.
