No Child Left Behind all the way, no room for projects or anything but just that. Music Teacher wonderful, but no Art at all. Facilities are ok. Parents are not involved, but probably because they are not invited by Principal. For example: The open house welcome of the Principal at this elemantary school was on closed ciruit, she could not take the time for this important evening to attend in person, and so the story goes. It seems that she is a good administrator to keep the figures straight, as far as caring for the kids, no. I would not recommend this school presently, although there are some wonderful teachers, but also those teachers who do not believe in the public school system and they send their own children to a private school. Go figure!
