We love this school!  Top notch leadership and teaching staff.  Our kids are learning at high levels, the staff share information with us freely, are caring, positive and obviously dedicated to helping all students succeed.   This is a very inclusive school...everyone is welcome and made to feel that way.

By a Parent on

Good location, new building and close to our neighborhood.
As a big concern, They do not provide transportation(school bus) for our kids because our neighborhood location are too close.
Safety issue : our kids should walk to school but there's no side walk on the street. Portage City should  find a Preventive way before some thing bad really happened. Who will hold the  responsibility if worst thing happened?
