Sendak is an awesome school! I love the staff and Administration. The parent center is great a resource for the parents and community. The facilities are new and clean. The special education program is very qualified and most of all caring and compassionate. Teachers strive to provide the best education for their students. It offers have a Magnet program that will kick off in the fall. I love this school.

This is a newly built dream school that is a safe, community based effort to prepare our well rounded students to be leaders. It has every ammenitiy including wireless access but more importantly, it has heart. The teachers and parents love the children and the school. It shines as a beacon where everyone is wild about teaching and learning. Mr. Sendak is the headmaster.
