I loved this school for my 6 year stay (2009-2015) (kindergarten-5th grade.) This school was part of the reason my childhood record was high (i'm still in my childhood.) The best grades for me where kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 5th grade! I loved gym and computer. School lunch though same as HMS was GREAT! The school went downhill (At least when it happened for 2013-2014) when liabrary street and H.O.S mixed in with the school. Some jerk kids came and a lot of good kids came but the buses where TERRIBLE around this time! Overall the teachers where 8/10 lunch was 9/10 kids where 7/10 buses where 5/10 nostolga was 10/10 and ativities where 8/10!

The academics are of very good but they could be improved to cover all learning styles. Availability of music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities are limited due to district funding. Also current activities are incorrectly staffed in regards to student to adult ratio. I think the level of parent involve goes to far and leaves our children exposed to adults who are not trained to deal with situation that should proved safety for our children during lunch and recess.
