I have been a part of this school since 2012 and have nothing but AMAZING things to say. The administration is accommodating to parent needs. The principal will listen to you and follows up to make sure your needs were met. Every teacher we have had has been my child''s new favorite! They go above and beyond to make their teaching engaging. They have themed days for math and science, field trips to new places every year and above all, a safe place for my student to learn.

The teacher/student ratio is closer to 25:1. My son was the 25th student to enter his classroom. The bullying is horrific! It's been going on since at least 2011. And it continues. Many parents pull their children from this school b/c of the bullying. I am pulling mine and back to private school we go!! It is not a caring positive learning environment. Rather, noisy, chaotic and uncontrolled classrooms. Lessons are sometimes not heard by a student due to the noise. Lessons are done under a desk by a few students, so the student can find peace to focus on the assignment. Really? Under the desk? Why can't the classroom be quiet? And who controls that? Phys Ed is unimpressive and the children get more exercise at recess. It's just not the place. Their rankings are old, wrong, and discombobulated.
