We believe schools have an enormous impact on children’s lives. Improving the educational outcomes for our students requires support from all segments of our community, including parents, caregivers, businesses, elected and appointed of cials, civic and faith based organizations, along with the School District leaders, staff, and students. We believe that parents are our partners in helping their children learn at their highest levels.

Student Attendance89%
This is the average daily attendance at the school – on average, what percent of all the students enrolled at the school are in attendance. We don’t know why students may not be attending the school, but if this is a low number it is likely that teachers may have to spend more time reviewing material that absent students miss, making it harder to move forward in a class.
