School Reviews

5   11/9/2009
There are some great teachers, good teachers, and bad teachers here. The facilities are acceptable - there will be some additions or renovations soon from what I understand. The principal can be difficult to deal with, but is usually fairly easy to get in touch with. There are several extracurricular activities, such as band and a running club. My suggestion is to talk to other parents and research well before selecting a teacher here.

There is a good amount of parental involvement at this school. Over 97% of the parents came to the last conferences (oct 2008). The principal seems responsive and available. The teachers seem to be nice and concerned about the students. The facilities are okay - they have a locked building this year, which I think is good. As far as extracurricular activities, there seem to be some clubs and organizations, but nothing really out of the ordinary. I do not know much about the student body in general, but, as a mother of a current kindergarten student, I can say that the Kindergarten students seem very nice.
