I have my third child going through this school. It is a phenomenal school with great teachers. The administration and staff have been consistent for many many years. They have a super strong reading program here and offer many incentives to do well. The PTO is strong as well and offer a variety of activities throughout the year to include: Evening Art Showcase, Family Fun Nights, Family Brain Activity nights, Book Fairs, Back to School Luau, and Fall/Spring Fling to name a few. I absolutely adore this school and it's quaint neighborhood feel.
