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.
