I have paid closer attention to this school as I talk with more parents as my kids get involved in local activities. We have a kid who has gone through elementary and into middle school as well as a second one working through elementary. With a sample size of two, but friends with dozens, I can unequivocally support the passion that all our teachers and the Administrative staff who have found their stride. For years, principal Hamasaki did a great job and now with Principal A. getting the data to make clearer decisions for her vision - it is coming into focus. We look forward to all this school has to offer to help them love learning for the rest of their lives!

I have mixed feelings about this school. I think the elementary teachers are good to very good, with a few outstanding teachers. The elementary school benefits from having access to some of the resources of the middle school, in particular the music program. The middle school, though, I feel is not up to par with schools such as Summit. The newly implemented "collaboration" days take such so much time out of the schedule and I don't feel that students really benefit from it. Some of the middle school teachers are really not very good. My child had a new teacher teaching an advanced level (high school) class and received very little instruction - students called each other and tried to figure the lessons out on their own as the teacher didn't explain the lesson thoroughly. Not good. However, there are some outstanding teachers and it's a pity that the bad ones overshadow them. Good selection of after school activities. They used to have some before school, but because of the schedule change most of those got cut. Another problem with collaboration days is that middle schoolers no longer have help sessions. Have to try to catch teachers at lunch time.
