This school meets all of my kids needs. They test the children after the initial test of the chapter so they don`t forget, like most other schools. They have therapy for children who are emotionally unstable. They have Student council where children vote for a child in their class to lead them and the rest of the school to make certain decisions. That starts at 3rd grade and goes all the way to 5th. They have healthy lunches that the students seem to enjoy. They have cozy corners in every class room so when children get emotional they let out their emotions there. They use textbooks but they also make their own curriculum. They have recess and they have superb staff. At the beginning of the year they teach all the kids what to do if someone is choking or being bullied. They have multiple field trips every year. They have chess and card games there. Overall, This is a great school! Take your kid there!

This school stinks!. Severely overcrowded, rude staff and never wants to be held accountable for their errors. Do yourself a favor and keep your child as far away from this school as possible.
