Excellent elementary school. Students have access to music, art, all sports, and extracurricular activities. The elementary hosts 3 academic awards programs every spring to recognize students. They also held graduation for 6th grade moving up to middle school. Parents are involved as they want to be. Harvest Festival is a big fundraiser for PTO.

This school is an open school. Anyone can come and go that doesnt attend. There is not adult supervision for the amount of children that attend. They dont listen nor do they return phone calls to the parents in a timely fashion. Do not promote a child if not desirved.
