This school is great especially Mrs.Phillips she's kept my kids grades  up

Reviewed on

I really enjoy having my grandson's in your school, it has been a wonderful experience, the teacher's and the prinicpal are great. I would like to point out one issue that one of my grandson's is dealing with and it's continueing teasing from other student's, I understand kids will be kids but it just breaks my heart to see my grandson so upset. I just thought it should be addressed and with no names given due to we don't the "tatter tailing" teasing to become an issue. Just remind the kids to be nice to each other. I am looking forward to all the activitie's scheduled for this year. Concerned Grandparent

Its the best school I've seen.  The teachers and the principal are so united  that you can see it in their API scores. The Parents understand that in order for their kids to be better students they need to be involved.  So you always see many parent volunteers.  The children love their school and the staff. My kids love going to school because they know everyone cares for them and their well being. Thanks to all the staff for their hard work.
