Little known gem of a school. Underpopulated, active parents, good test scores, nestled in the midst of a neighborhood. It's difficult to even find at first. Kids are happy and know their teachers well since most have been there 10 years or more. They go back to see old ones and know new ones through siblings and PTA. Every year we have a few magnet kids return because they like the atmosphere better.
