  • I am not to happy with how this school and its web-site were unhelpful for our family. This is his first year as a 3rd grader and we have no clue where his class is(we have room # but that is it) and we can NOT look it up on line. So now on the first day of school we have to go and walk the whole school just to get an idea of where he needs to go. From the outside the school looks great and he is all excited on being at a new school, now I just hope it stays that way for him.
