I advise all parents thinking of sending gheir children to this school ..DONT!! Principal lacks ability to resolve issues with the children directly with parents. There is a lot of bullying in this school. Principal, teachers amd staff truly do nkt know how to handle and put a stop to it. Front desk satff is so rude. Really need to learn to be friendly and helpful when parents come in. Teachers.....sadly maybe one out of ten really care about the children learning..and really teach from the heart... I can assure you parents that send their kids to this school have no choice are not aware of the flaws. I wish the district would look into solving the issues Tuis school and work on improving this school that can be a great safe place for so many children that attend. If you have another option of where to send your child go ahead . It may save you phone calls to the district..injuries to your child ...emotional abuse...horrible food and may help your child to get the education he/ she deserves from a better school. I have 1 star so that I could post my review

This is a low score school. The teachers only attend school just to get paid not to teach. Not only the students are bullies but the teachers are well. I'm pulling my child out this school. The attendace office staff are rude

Because they do an outstanding job with many challenges. Every year their test scores go up. Each person who works there has a true dedication to helping kids succeed.

Ever since the current principal, Mr. Marquez, arrived changes were made. Test scores sky rocketed and student experiences have improved- it's more pleasant. Students are better prepared for high school and they offer more extra curricular than any other elementary school in the area. He communicates well with parents, teachers, and students. I never once had an unpleasant encounter with him and at the assemblies he treats all students and teachers with respect even 'paraprofessionals'

Pricipal is a poor excuse of a man. His communcation skills are horrible, his treats the students and teachers with sarcasm and he has no respect for paraprofessionals. I pulled my child out of that school
