This is a good school with good teachers and we found the new principal to be very dedicated and thoughtful.

The squeaky wheel really does get the grease. It effectively makes everyone know what it needs. When it comes to your children's education, and safety, sometimes you have to be the squeaky wheel. In the past parents often accepted that the school officials were doing everything right, equally for all, and to the best of their abilities. Even when a school's intentions are the best parents may still need to play an important role as supporters, cheerleaders and, yes, watchdogs. Parents who understand their power can play a huge part in the quality of their community schools and the education of their children. This new model of parental involvement creates a partnership with the schools to help them improve, hold them accountable, and set high expectations for achievement, programs, and facilities.
