Great parent involvement, but too much in a way...
The reading/math coarches are volunteer parents, but that doesn't seem to be effective enough for kids to do better.
Other schools scoring higher have teachers doing math/reading coach.
More teacher involvement is much more needed than anything else!

Incredible school, caring teachers & good kids. My daughter has been able to excel in this environment well past what her "in-grade" work would have been in any other school. Additionally, she is able to get up & move her body, instead of being confined to a chair & desk all day long. Her teacher is so caring & kind, but also firm. We feel very blessed to have gotten into this school.
Great art and music programs. Better science equipment than some middle schools. Very attentive to the needs of students. Montessori learning really helps some kids.
