My grandaughter Laura transfered into this school in December last year when we moved into a new home and she has done so well there the best she has ever done. This is really a child first school with excellent administration and excellent teachers. Have raised 4 children and can honestly say this is one of the best schools I have found.

I currently have first grade child in this school and one who attended from 2003 to 2007. In 2003 a math program was introduced to the school starting with my daughters grade called 'Every Day Math'. Hundreds of reviews of this program show it to have a strong negative impact on necessary future math skills. Yet the school still uses this program. Since adopting this they have lost sight of all the other academic skills needed to have a well rounded education. I will be Home Schooling next year.
My son attended here 2000-2004 and he did extremely well. He loved the teachers the music and art programs were great. The school itself has a cheery atmosphere and is well maintained. I have since moved from the area but would love to have this school to send my daughter to who will be entering the system in 2 years. The teachers identified a slight reading problem with my son in 1st grade and placed in a special progam (Title 9 or something) and he went gang busters after that. Great staff and school from office to teachers.
There are many great programs and good facilites. The school seems to do a good job on involving parents in their child's education. However the school is very big and a little intimadating for younger students.
