We moved here for the great schools. If you like an elementary school that does not adequately handle bullying, that does not provide assistants in its classrooms, that dilutes its content and teaches to the lowest performing student in the class, then this is your school. The 12:1 student ratio that is claimed above is completely wrong. Class sizes have grown and teachers on their own with up to 18 kids in the younger grades. This takes away from the learning experience.
