    Ms. Carriveau gives great attention to our gifted child. I appreciate the specialized attention and guidance she gets and would reccomend her to any one asking.

    Terrible communication with the faculty and parents. Poorly handled situations between students as well. Confrontations brought to the faculty attention were not attened to until counselors were involved. Reasons stated they've been together playing with each other since the first grade. Not a good reason for bullying!

    I could not ask for a better team of teachers and administrators for a school. My kids range from average to gifted and have been happy with the individual attention the teachers have given when needed especially our gifted child. The principal cares about the children at the school and knows many of them on a first-name basis not because they are sent to see him often but because he cares and wants to know the child. The teachers as a whole are dedicated to educating the children in whatever way possible those I've dealt with welcome parent volunteers.
