School Reviews

5   11/15/2012
This is a great school overall. We chose to locate to the district for many reasons. We liked the curriculum as well as the programs that are offered. The school is clean. There is little to no behavioral issues that are not typical of elementary schools. The only downfall is that little is done for the children who can not afford all of the programs and I see children that are left out because of financial issues. The front desk staff is not very helpful and rude. The teachers are all helpful, skilled and dedicated.
