This is overall a great school. Having spent few years in this school I believe most teachers try to teach honesty, integrity and leadership. When I say most I mean most, not all. Not all of them practice the same. Overtime this school has lost some good teachers, they have left/moved on for reasons I don't know. The teachers left are still excellent Ms Hoffman, Ms McCarthy, Maddux many of them. With new teachers coming in, children have felt various kinds of discrimination the new teachers have brought in. If your child is not a white American, chances are he/she will face discrimination here and there. When the whole class is being given out donuts and only one childs name is not called out and not given a donut that child feels discriminated and if this happens more than once, then there's no doubt why teacher is forgetting that child. His/her peers have also noticed and teased about this. When your child gets caught and blamed because someone else was talking to him/her even though your child was not even participating, it seems unfair. This is something to be aware that some teacher's behavior is not upto the mark and I don't believe they can ever teach honesty and integrity when they themselves lack in this. But still over all a good school and many other teachers are still nice. We teach our kids to be strong and ignore such people if they come across in life but it does hurt them and want to understand why do people especially teachers have to be mean?

Mrs Hoffman, Mrs McCarthy. Children like them. They are great examples of what teachers should be.

Most teachers do but not all. Not all teachers are honest and can teach integrity when they themselves discriminate against children.

There is a lot of teacher turnover and new teachers have a minimum of experience.

Fantastic school. From the principal Linda to the teachers and to the admin staff, all are very kind, understanding and most importantly, respectful. I can see their behavior can only have positive impact on the students. Highly recommended.
