    "I have 3 kids in this schools and they're all very happy with the experience. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. The school sends out a lot of communication keeping eveyone informed of all the upcoming acitvies and what's going in. We're impressed with all the events the school organizes and everyone there feels like a family. Most of the teachers are great. They pay genuine interest in making sure the kids get the proper schooling. Although I must say that some assignments are assumed to be done by parents due to their complexity. So it's a bit challenging to make sure we (the parents) find time and get them done. I wish the teachers were more open to giving extra projects to kids who have abilities to excel in certain areas."

    "I absolutely love this school. The teachers are awesome. The attention the children receive is 5****. I was new to the area and my boys have been attending for 2 years and are doing wonderful. The teachers help the kids with any needs they are having that day. All around I have found not one thing to complain about."

    "As the step-father of two wonderful children in this school district (both of whom live with their mother and I), I have to say the school has been excellent in its efforts to keep me informed and involved in my step children's school activities. The teachers strive to bring the best quality of education to the students, not just on an academic level, but on a personal level, identifying the individual needs of each student, where they excel and where they need help, and have kept me and my wife very informed and involved in order to help our children continue to excel and learn."

    "I have two children in this school, Kindergarten and second grade. My experiences so far: - Teachers - excellent. Mrs. Ho (K) and Miss Cunnane (2) are there current teachers, both excellent - School - seems to be a very manageable size, from everything I can see, well run. - Administration, and district as a whole: so-so..in particular, this district has not made any provisions whatsoever for children from dual households. As a single father, I have had to explicitly take action to get invited to parent teacher conferences, get copies of report cards, get notices from the school, and especially, to get listed in the parents directory. The school and district would appear to like to sweep the presence of single parents 'under the rug'. I have many single parent friends, and this is definitely not the case in other districts of similar size."
