    Everyone is eager to join in and help. Very supportive enviroment and parents are very involved. Parents have high expectations as they should which in turn makes for great student involved events being on top of technology going into the school meeting the needs of students and teachers and keeping the relationships strong between teachers and parents. They say it can take a village to raise a child and this school is like our village.

    My 3 children love this school! I am a PAC officer and involved volunteer. Teachers staff and families are A+++! The PAC raises and provides funding for outstanding enrichment programming technology purchases family events classroom needs and more. We were grand prize winners of a Play60 grant this year from the NFL and New England Patriots as a Super School with a focus on health wellness and fitness. Enrichment programming and family nights tie learning fun and curriculum all together. A vibrant and supportive school community.

    We are concerned about the large class sizes and math scores. Resources are limited esp. in technology. Nice building.
