I wouldnt dare recommend sending my child or anyone else's to this school I'm withdrawing my children immediately. The principal and some of the teachers I won't name likes to get in your business by interrogating your children.

The school is okay but could be more creative with their learning process. The cafeteria food also needs approving. They could use more teaching materials and more activities for the kids to get involved in.

The teachers in grades PreK- 2nd are extremely dedicated to the students in their classes.

While walking by a 2nd grade class I listened to [hopefully a visiting] teacher railing loudly at the kids about reading. What was also sad is that she was using poor grammar! I was afraid of her myself and kids can't learn in fear. There is no freedom in fear. Praise and encouragement and really caring for the kids. That's what they respond to.

The school has a new principal this year and this is her first year interacting with elementary level students. Very little parent involvement and 5th grade discipline problems is still an issue at the school. There aren't many program for K - 2 graders that can help with reading and math skills. The programs mostly target the 3rd - 5th graders. I feel they need more program to help students before they get in the 3rd grade. This may improve reading and math scores.

Great teachers who teach with limited resources. Discipline problem with 5th graders primarly because thier are too many students in the class room. Parent participation very low: small core group of parents who volunteer and particpate in school's PTA.
