This is an average school the report of 16 students per teacher is very misleading as most have 20 or more students. Grades are K-6 with Head Start Preschool using one of the buildings. Speaking of buildings they are constructing a new two-story bldg behind "I" - it should be ready for use by mid- 2014. They had an excellent principal but due to some false complaints last year he is currently out- teachers and students alike want him back ASAP as the current "acting principal" has no experience what so ever having only been a VP & doesn't even know what "N.C.L.B." means. The two remaining VPs are doing all the real work to keep the school afloat in spirit along with 2 remaining office personnel. I hope for the sake of the staff & children they replace him with the original. There is a lot of work to get back to the lessons of teaching to learn rather then to the tests and the teachers and staff take their jobs seriously helping after school and on their own time. They are very devoted to the mantra of learning should be fun important and something everyone young and old should strive for throughout their entire life.
