We moved into the area because of this top rated school and it exceeded our expectations. Excellent staff and sense of community.

This school feels like private school. Well rounded curriculum including performing arts. Great interaction between school staff and parents.

Teachers overall are terrific so when you get an average one (and there are a few) they pale in comparison to most of the staff. The parents are very involved and supportive. The atmosphere is like a private school and is especially good for your kids when they are young. Principal is not well liked by many which can impact the school at times.

I was not impressed with this school. The school day is extremely short. You can feel the stress the teachers and students are under to get all the work done in such a short amount of time. The result of such a short school day is a large amount of school work being sent home. The teachers are also expected to participate in a large amount of teaching enhancement sessions. This results in teachers spending less time in the classroom. Enhancement is great, but it shouldn't replace actual teaching hours. You could tell this school puts way too much emphasis on "meeting the standard" and not the overall learning process. Since this standard is never really explained to the students or parents, I can only assume the standard they refer to is the standardize test.
