  • This school is VERY small but doesn't have the expected environment. The kids are nasty, rude, and aggressive. You would think they would be better because it's a straight set catholic school. The curriculum is not very good either. They have two good teahers, Mrs. Siegrist, the third grade teacher, and Mrs. McAliney, she used to be the fourth grade teacher but I think she's doing 1st or 2nd now. There are no sports teams at this school except a little track...that isn't that great. They used to have a great basket ball team and coach, but the team went to high school along with the coach. This year no one wanted to play. This "playground" is made up of a small recycled tire pit with 2 swings (2 are broken), monkey bars, a little slide, a large slide that's broken. Outside this small area is a parking lot that is closed to the public during school hours. It is just a regular parking lot. This "playground" has zero grass. There are two buildings, One with k-3rd grades, a caffeteria/gym in one and the offices. The second building is across the parking lot. It has 4th through 8th grade. All grades have "lockers" (they're really just wooden cubbies...with no lockes). The 4th and 5th graders are in the classrooms. The 6th to 8th graders have theirs in the hallway. Neither of the buildings are heated.
