Parent: The teachers, principal and staff are amazing. The foster a culture that is inclusive, fun and extremely conducive to learning. They teach more than the three R's and STEM. Each person actively engages students to help the children become all they can be.
In my opinion, the hot lunches leave a lot to be desired on both nutritional and palatable scales.
Also, we parents aren't as engaged as we can be. It seems like the PTO is always needing to beg at the last minute for volunteers. Also, more parents helping, especially for the early levels would be a huge plus.

Parent: Our son is currently in the 2nd grade. He has been at the school for two years, and it has been a wonderful experience. The enthusiasm of the teachers, who are truly experts in the subjects they teach, is infectious. They consistently set high standards for all students at every stage of their academic career. This is a school that prioritizes academics and the students themselves; it is targeted to students with intellectual curiosity and a strong work ethic. We are very happy here!
