The staff is wonderful, the office staff as well, I hate that the teachers are not allowed to really be creative, they have to followe everything to a Tee for testing, it is not their fault,, but the admin. They only care about testing results, which hinders the teachers from being creative. Overall the school is wonderful

Although my son did very well in Prek and Kinder, he did not do well in 1st and 2nd. We had to complain to the principal two years in a row regarding the teachers. The teachers have no creativity because there is no time. The teachers plan curriculum only to the tests. Teachers do not give complete homework or progress reports. Both years my child was in the top of the class but was still at basic level. The school needs to hire new teachers with new fresh ideas. If you are not low income, you will receive no assistance for tutoring. If you make a complaint, expect to be investigated by school personal.

It is such a wonderful school. The teachers are great and are wonderful in keeping parents involved. They helped my son achieve alot not only in academics but also socially. They are great with knowing every student in the class and involving eveyone in classroom studies. Extracurricular activities are also excellent they offer after school tutoring, library help, boyscouts, track, and band. Overall I thought it was a wonderful school with a wonderful staff and also a great Prekindergarden classes
