My 2 children attend this school and have for the past 4 years. The school provides no challenge programs for gifted and talented students and they end up bored. Teachers do not communicate issues or concerns, you have to hear about them from others and contact the school.
The curriculum is fairly weak. The use of 'stretch spelling' and lack of phonics emphasis leaves students behind from the start. Students are given way to much free time in the lower grades with little emphasis on the purpose of being there, i.e. learning.

The communication with parents is great. The special funding received from the state allows for things like their new computer lab. Classroom size is still relatively small, and is further broken out into groups for more concentrated learning.
