Very happy with the school. Very tight knit and inviting. Kids are all military, parents are very involved. Principle is excellent.
Not So Good:
- The gifted program is pull out/enrichment which means that your child won't actually learn anything.
- The school is converting to Everyday Math, so your child will struggle to learn... math.
- No ability grouping
