Teachers & entire staff is very caring about all students.

Amazing teachers and principal along with a great community of parents.

Our daughter was consistently denied a 504 plan, even though she had documented issues verified by behavioral psychologist, therapist, and occupational therapists. The principal would agree to coordinate on paper, and then pull me aside on campus and tell me that they didn't find it beneficial to do so. The teachers were wonderful and tried to do what they could, but without proper guidance from a 504, her behaviors continued to regress and her grades dropped. Thankfully, we relocated and her new school is very much engaged with keeping her best interests at heart, not the bottom line.

I agree and disagree with some of the comments from prior years. The new principal does not contain one ounce of aloof-ness. She is full of energy and involved. They also recently hired new teachers and the class sizes are now much smaller due to bumping 6th grade to middle school. The home and school club is constantly asking for donations....every week. I don't mind or feel obligated to donate, but donate what I can as this helps fund special projects such as the wonderful music program. They also recently began to offer FREE after school enrichment/activities for working parents that cannot pick up thier child until 6 pm. Its a lottery, so we did not get in. Parking is a complete mess. You will have to park blocks away and risk fending off dangeous speeders crossing streets which often turns into being late regardless if you arrive early. There is only parking on the street and about 6 parking spots for vistors. The earlier you arrive the more congested and time consuming the drop off/carpool lanes would suggest a good 15 minutes from your car to class. School begins at 7:45--'7:45 to 6 pm is a long day for kids needing after care, but the onsite CDC is great and Lorena is awesome. Most parents are involved and friendly. I have not noticed the home school as unfriendly or pretentious, but we are in a household were both parents work and do not have much involvement besides attending activities. Overall academics are the best part of this school. 5 stars for education but I would rate 1 star for parking. Also, my children are not one of the perfect kids mentioned and the teachers constantly work with us proactively on academic and behavioral improvements. Good job Nordstrom! Now get the parking under control. I would say different start times for classes could also help with parking.
