This school used to be a great school until they got a new principal, he is not good for that place. The school has gone down since the last principal, she was great. PTO has gone down since some great people has left sad;-( they were awesome. Now it seems like no-one is involved for anything now. Poor kids! They don't even have many field trips anymore to reward the kids at the end of the year. For this school to improve it needs to be remodeled, need a new principal, and a whole lot of parents and teachers involvement to be better and succeed. Also money.
This school is great. The principal is great. It seems as if the staff and teachers know all, if not most, of the children by name. It's a small, very involved community. The PTO is a group of wonderful, friendly parents who want what is best for the students. There are many family friendly activities at this school. Family participation is welcomed and encouraged.
This used to be a decent school until they got the new principle. As for the teachers, I loved the previous teachers that have been at the school for many years. The newer ones are not so great. Seems like the classrooms are so packed that they take the frustration out on the students. NOT A GREAT WORK ENVIRONMENT! I will be taking my child out and placing her in a different school very soon.
This is a great school. If there should be any problem to arise the staff is well qualified to handle the situation. Most importantly the principal is very involved. She is at every function the school has and that is very very rare. She evens directs traffic at school, wow
This school is excelent. The principal is very involved and enthusiastic. She supports the staff, students, parents and PTO. The teachers and staff work very hard and encourage the students to reach their potential. I wish there was more parent involvement - in the classrooms and with the PTO. We have a great group of parents working with the principal and staff to benefit the students, but welcome any one that can help.
There should be more after school activities for the kids such as music & art classes. Also, the kids don't get enough exercise during the day. PE should be part of the recesses which include the teachers on the field exercising with their students.
