Great kids and a great staff make this an amazing school. Every adult in the building genuinely cares for every student and works hard to teach/mentor them.

I went to this school k-5th grade and I just have to say that I was pleased with the grades k-3. But after that I was kin of disappointed with the teachers. One of my teachers in the 4th grade would grab other students by the collar and pull towards her. In the 5th grade my teacher would pick a favorite in the class and they would do everything for him or her such as: get papers from the printer, when the teacher would leave the room, this student would watch and see who would be talking or passing or goofing off. That year was rough. This teacher would make people get so mad and one time made me cry in class he or she also did that to a few other students. Also I thought that he or she was lying a couple times. Why would a teacher lie to her students? He or she is supposed to be a ro-model for their students. also this teacher would brag about their family A LOT. I mean the students are there to learn not to listen to a life story of the teacher.
