  • We cannot believe this school! Our kids would live in a tent to keep from leaving this district. The way the kids and staff interact with each other is miraculeous. Never did we think we would find a school where the KIDS were kind and not verbally abusive to others that look different than them. I mean how do you teach an entire district... teachers, kids, etc) to not act indifferent because they have money or to treat somone different. The awards for excellence are truly amazing. Our eldest daughter researched school districts for the purchase of her first home. I remember her telling me she was shocked to see the scores and high attendance rates, low dropout rates and honestly thought the writer was apparently partial with this district. Not so! Amazing. God bless this school district and all those working in and for it!
