    Great school - great education! My boys did great - really glad that I sent them there.

  • (5 years ago)

    I'm very impressed by the dedication of the staff. Almost every child receives some sort of enrichment whether he is ahead or behind. It is the largest school in town but that just means more resources and more options. My son is very happy and so are we.

    my son goes to this school and it is wonderful!the principal and assistant principal greet the kids outside every morning and afternoon. They are so dedicated to these children.

    this school is disorganized and has had many administrative changes. Accessing special education for my child was extremely difficult and I kept hearing 'he's not the worst in his class'. The school appears under funded but is perhaps just mismanaged. However on the bright side there are many extra activities that are volunteer run and parents make a big presence in the school. The town in general which is reflected in the school is very artsy and makes efforts at participating in cultural events.
