Academically this school is about average. I feel however that there should be more focus on academics in the younger classrooms. There are no sports for this school, only through the parks and recreation. There are no language classes as well. They are only offered after school for about 2 months out of the school year and only once a week for about 25 minutes....what can a child learn from that? I'd rate the facility about average. There are definitely some teachers that should not be there! Those teachers have a VERY low tolerance level for elementary aged kids. If your child has trouble sitting still or has lots of energy, you would not want to send them here. The parent involvement is fairly good.
