This school has a lot of potential, but it lacks a strong principle, I wish I wouldn't run into so many problems with this school, the office manager, Maria is unorganized and not helpful, honestly I wouldn't have my children attend this school, but it is the closest to our house, I am contemplating whether or not to transfer them to another school in the district.

In my humble opinion, the current principal is horribly incompetent and unprofessional. I've witnessed her "intercommunication" with parents and it's appalling. She speaks to them as if they were complete imbeciles. Although their are a few wonderful teachers at this school, the leadership here is an unfortunate representation of this public institution. I sincerely hope this is conveyed during the next staff evaluation.

Amazing staff and principal. Gregory O'Brien is full of energy and runs a tight ship. I have never seen a principal so involved in all aspects of the school... truly amazing. Only complain is the traffic that runs on Temple. If I have any more children, this is the place where I am willing to drive in order to provide my child with an awesome education. How can one explain the 49 point increase in API? Truly amazed.
