  • This schools is OK. you can tell they don't take a lot of pride in actually teaching their students. My daughter is now in second grade there, and every year has a snack time, rest time, doodle time and althought I am required to send loads of paper and pencils every year, they also require a white board, which is all that they use. They give the children poor grades and poor "colors of the day" but do not send anything home with the student for the parent to acknowledge the problem, and correct it. If I was able to make decisions without my ex's consent, she would be removed without school without question.

  • I am a parent of Cooper. I have been at this school for a long time. I am very impressed with the leadership and the teachers. They love the students and work hard to help them do their best. The school has made high growth and AYP two years in a row! My child has done extremely well over the years! Great school!
