Jamie, the office receptionist, is a horrible representative of this, or any school. She is rude, literally on every interaction. I have spoken to the school board about her and apparently that only made her more rude. My daughter has made several comments as a result of here observations of her rudeness. She actually scowls / gives dirty looks when she is displeased or bothered when she is talking. How do you allow someone that has such little control of their negative emotions to represent your organization? I have talked with several parents that have made the same observations regarding Jamie. Apparently its not a priority of leadership at this school, as several of the staff are friendly and polite, the majority are not. Certainly, the attitudes and warmth (or total lack there of) of the staff has a lot to do with the quality of the educational experience. This negative aspect of the school truly over shadows any good that is achieved via the school districts standards.

It is the start of the school year 2005/2006. My child is entering the 6th grade and there are 41 students in her class! This is unheard of. The teacher is apparently good and my child likes him. But a new school was just built to take on the overflow, but what happened? Last year there were 36 kids and now there is more? This is a very good school and I'm thus far happy, but 41 kids?
