    Teacher's are fantastic--always trying their best to help their students succeed. Very friendly inviting environment to student-teach in. Love this school.

    Test scores speak for themselves this school and many others in the area need to work on the academic programs and how the teachers teach these programs. The teachers do not get paid enough and it shows. My son was bullied often and when I confronted the principle she didn't seem concerned for my sons safety at all. Teachers are nice but don't have enough time to work with everyone because they are to busy dealing with the troubled children.
