Our Review

This neighborhood school is open to all children who live in its attendance zone.

This school also has a dual language program. Dual language programs offer instruction in two languages and are designed to make children fluent speakers, readers and writers in both. Typically, classes mix native speakers of both languages; the language of instruction alternates. Some of these programs have room for children outside the zone.

See our School Stats for information about safety, atmosphere and academics.
