This school really was unique school and I have grown to love the staff because they are sweet and caring and always willing to let you come back and visit even it you are in high school. Your old teachers are always there for you and I have always experienced that from my 5th grade teacher Ms.Gaitor man I love her she helped me with everything. Even the school wouldn't be your first pick it was nice to attend and they always made sure we where doing something fun and active.
This school is ok. There were a few fights while I was there, but it was generally the 7th and 8th graders or the neighboring high school students. The teachers are great. They teach the material really well, and have after school times for tutoring if needed. The walk to and from school is very calm.
