I am grateful for my son's second grade teacher, Ms. Colins, who is helpful and genuinely cares about my son's academic success.

I think the Teachers overall are effective especially considering all that they're up against with increasing classroom sizes and forced district curriculum.

This school has caring teachers, an involved principal and great parent and community involvement. It also has a good after school program, Star.

As a parent in this school i'm shocked at some of the things I see written below. Someone foolishly posted that enrichment programs were cut. But none were. Despite the fact classes sizes have dropped in all but one grade. Someone else posted that the school was losing good teachers, but the few that left, frankly, were substandard. They were replaced with better teachers. The teacher pool here has improved dramatically in the past seven years. Im not sure what happened on May 30 2015, but it sure looks like several people with a fear of change, and an axe to grind, decided to speak up all at once.

Although I would have strongly agreed a few years ago, all the good things that I saw at this school are gone after the introduction of the most inefficient school Principal.

The teachers are amazing, however their challenge is more support from the community that keeps a great teacher happy.

This school is in a transitional stage and needs support with understanding the history and labor of what it took to achieve a great school before it can become a great school again.

Respects starts is taught by parents first and then kids come to school and act what they see at home. The school isn't responsible respect but can help with proper guidance. It take a Parent, Teachers and Students willing to work together.

There's a lot of pressure on these kids for such a young age. The system that has been set up years ago is changing to a more pushy mentality.
