I just called the school to change my child bus because of a unexpected discision made on my job that will not allow me leave until 5pm! I tried other family members to make arrangements there was no one else! So i called up to the school to see if i could get his bus change to come to my job and she told me that i could not because of policy after i told her there was no way i could get to him! "He will be outside along" i told her and she said it was nothing that could be done ! Surely it was something that could have been done! They couldve ask me for identification information for him or even for me! I understand safety is first when they are in school but what about the safety levels i have when he leaves their care into mine! Very disappointed! Please find other options for this situation!

This is a bad school to send the kids to!!!!! Great teachers but the Principal, S. Jackson, is very ignorant and loves talking down to others.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
