    Two of my children have gone through this school. Teachers are somewhat pleasant and seem to communicate ok. My oldest is IEP but despite having major struggles he wasn't diagnosed until age 7 and provided an IEP. The school has gone through at least 4 principles in less than 6 years which leads me to believe there are some board of ed issues. This year I have seen a steady decline in staff and teacher morale. Many school extras have been cut but I can say they have made an attempt to update security systems and replace playground equipment also expand the parking lot. I would like to see some of the older teachers retire and bring in some new staff solely because the older teachers just seem flat out exhausted and it's obvious. School lunches are ok. Overall it's a decent community with minimal ethnic diversity. I do feel the school and child study team make a significant effort to stay abreast of your child's education goals for differently able children.

    I thought the school system was great until they killed our childs french immersion program. They had a great thing going and they lost my vote of confidence

    I moved here becuase of the the school but now wish I went into Ocean City. This school is having major budget cuts that are affecting our kids and the quality of class size (which is overloaded); sports (which all will be cut within the next 2 years) extra classes like IMPACT (basically gone) art music shop and home ec (will be gone within the next 2 years if not next year. If your thinking about moving here look to see if you can afford in Ocean City first. The schools offer more and class size is between 12 - 20. Not 20-35 like in Upper.
