The school curriculum is based on every student succeeding and developing a love for learning that will extend far beyond his or her elementary and middle school years.
Parents are very pleased with the teaching methods offered and the dedicated staff that goes above and beyond to ensure that success does happen. The school is very parent friendly however; some parents did state that they wished more parents were involved. The student body is diverse with small classes and plenty of extracurricular activities too which parents also raved about. Students stated they really like the school and all the activities, but would like to see more sports.
The Academic Performance Index showed an increase of 23 points from the previous year to a score of 890. The statewide goal is 800. Parents could not be more pleased with the score and were quite impressed with the increase as well. This showed that the teachers are working hard to produce awesome numbers.
