Overall I feel lucky to have had my kids in this school district and they are well prepared for success in highschool and college.
My kid just went to middle school and he hadn’t a Great experience at the school. He’s above grade level and he’s prepared for middle school excelProgram. If you show interest in your child’s education, the teachers will work hard with your child.
Very frustrating. My one child has is so far behind because one of her teachers only cared about the paycheck. She cried everyday during that year but anytime I went to try and have communication with the teacher she was punished the following day. My older boy has had awesome teachers. I have witnessed high schoolers coming onto the school property and threaten younger kids. The parking lot situation is a joke. I attended the school years ago and loved everything about it but my kids will not be going there for too much longer. The school is on a downward slope .
To be honest, when we moved to the area, we never heard anything good about this school, hadn't planned on staying in the area and we had some issues while my kids were in kindergarten. Now they are going into 3rd grade and I have to say that the school has been amazing. I love the small class sizes and having a child with learning difficulties, it's been such a relief knowing my kids are people and not numbers. All their teachers have been amazing but their 2nd grade teacher has taken the cake for her determination for fighting for my one child to get the help he needs when he started having problems this past year. All the staff from the front office, nurses office, lunch staff, specials staff and so on are just the nicest. Even my kids are happy going (most of the time LOL)Overall, I recommend this school.
