Changes are happening and I've been at this school for five years with my now second grader. I can see the demeanor changing, and although I've always loved this school and the staff, it's constantly getting better! My son has adored all of his teachers and is ahead on grade level or meeting grade level with everything. It's a great school and they have taken such good care of my son and soon to be my daughter also.

Mixed feelings. Says they have a zero tolerance for bullying but that's not true. Second year of problems with bullies, seriously thinking about changing schools because of it.
