    "Many of the teachers have had a very long career at this school and truly care about each of the students. There is a high population of special needs kids which really teaches all the kids to be understanding of everyone's differences. My oldest has been in the advanced programs such as Primary Challenge and the Channels of Challenge since 2nd grade to help move him forward in math since this is an area he excels in. When we were looking to upgrade our home - our objective was to stay in the district because of this school. Down side - there's been some turnover with the principals, and the building is a bit outdated and really needs a number of upgrades. Overall, it's a wonderful school tucked into the neighborhood with smaller class sizes than many of the other schools in the district."

    "If you are not as involved with your kids' progress, expect a poor result. The principal is very much aware of what goes on the school ground. You will see her in classrooms and around the playground. The teachers need to refresh their agenda, the same boring lessons my child took 4-5 yrs ago, and now my youngest is still doing the same lessons. They prioritize the 'special needs' which is great but the big downfall is that the other kids are left behind. The class suffers in most cases. I know I witness it first hand."

    "We love this school and our child is thriving there. I find the teachers, the principal, the social worker and the other specialists to be very collaborative which seems to benefit the students. The small size adds to the sense of community and there are ample opportunities to get involved. As a working mom who can't help out all the time, it's nice to have different options."
