    We've experience some great teachers and the school participates earnestly in the community but the school leadership is inexperienced and lacking. They seem to really struggle in how to handle special needs students (everything from health concerns to disabilities)

    Great school. Great teachers great staff. My son likes it so much he is actually mad that we may have to move outside the school district when we buy a house.
