The Class room technology availabale to the teachers is impressive. Children learn at different paces and it s great that this school has a program in place to address that fact. Children are placed into reading and math classes according to their abilities. They switch classrooms for instruction, similar to junior high. Children who are struggling receive instruction at a leveled pace and those who are above grade level are challenged and receive accelerated work at a pace to keep their interest. Great idea! All schools should implement this program. Inappropriate conduct and language is not tollerated. Only complaint I have is the amount of candy given to the kids as rewards. Lunch options could be improved. According to our pediatric dentist "..apple juice pays my mortgage because it is nothing but sugar. Should be avoided!" Yet it is the only option provided for lunch EVERY DAY. (other than milk) What's wrong with water? :)

Rating this school based on the teachers and the quality of learning my children get is definitely a 5 star rating!! PTA and some other personnel there would maybe get 2 stars, based off of friendliness, or lack thereof, seems like they are always asking for more money from parents etc... The teachers are amazing, we have been there since it opened!

Polished and sparkled but no free thinking allowed. Office lady is rude (more than once). I have to agree with the politics of the last comment. Politics rule and these parents think they deserve a private education in a public school. Unreal - but not for those who pony up.

Overall, this is a great school. Like most schools, there is a lot of politics here regarding class placement and that gets frustrating when you see the same parents getting the best teachers this school has to offer all of the time. My son has done very well and has an IEP so I can overlook the politics.
