This is one of the finest elementary schools! The academic program is rigorous and the teachers are right there to offer support. The principal is very friendly and knowledgeable. She works with each child. The school facilities are well maintained. The arts are very important within the school and several awards and assemblies are sponsored to support the children. Great PTO!

Academics are perfect for average or help requiring students.The principal seems mostly concerned with numbers. This district does not apply funds towards gifted children. The playground needs to have some updating. Don't waste your time on this school district if your children are gifted or if you are expecting teachers to do more for your above average child because they are only interested in the no child left behind laws. I'm having to pay for private school so my kids can reach there true potentials.
