For an elementary school they have quite a few extracurricular activities. They have an orchestra that starts in 4th grade, choir, after school art classes, after school care, the music teacher was offering piano lessons at one point, they send home notes on how to join various sports, they have a daddy/daughter dance once a year, a mother/son softball game, and they have a garden they let the children sign up to take care of.

Parental involvement is decent. Sometimes there isn't enough volunteers for things, though. The school itself is kept up well enough but some of the bathrooms are gross sometimes. That's not the janitors' fault, though, they can't be everywhere at once. They have a nice computer lab with all Apple computers and they have IPads the kids use in the classroom.
The policies seem fair to me.
