Parents really like the school, parent involvement and teachers. The community awareness is strong in the school, which adds to the more family atmosphere where students feel safe and want to learn. Teachers are nurturing and caring as stated by parents. Some parents would like to see a few more activities added to the school but are very happy with the number of hands on field trips. Students like going to school and their teachers.
