Very pleased with faculty qualifications, gifted education offered, music, art, chorus. Recently renovated playground. Extra-curricular activities limited as compared to larger area schools. Building older, but very well maintained. Clean and cheerful inside and outside. Good parental involvement, no thugs at this school.
