My child's academic prowess has actually diminished since he started class here. His teacher holds him to a very low standard. Test assessment was actually worse than one he had taken 4 months earlier...how does that happen? Principle says "just wait a year, he'll catch up". What does that mean? He'll catch up to where he was previously? These people have absolutely no interest in what's best for the student. Someone once told me that you cannot depend on the school to educate your child. That is very apparent here.

No music program and outrageous censorship going on. My fiance's son came home one day and told me that his fourth grade class had spent the afternoon tearing "inappropriate" images and words out of their history books!

I know why the school is rated 2 now. The teachers are lacking. They're not full of energy. There's no learning! Everything my child knows up til know is from what I am teaching her at home. The teacher expect parents to just "know" there is a meeting. Teacher expects parents to be in class, she calls it "Parent Involvement" I call it laziness. She doesnt do anything in class but sing and dance. She doesnt stand up and point out details. I believe that in order for our children to succeed here and raise the rating from 2 to 10, they need new teachers pre-k to 6th grade.. younger teachers who still have the heart to teach and new ideas so children will want to learn.

My child has done well and is at the top of her class. However, I would like to see more extracurricular activities offered. Music is something she is very interested in and I wish she had the opportunity to be introduced to instruments of all kinds. As a parent I would have no problem contributing time and/or funds to her interests in music and art. I would also like to see the dress code inforced. I think the students should be wearing uniforms.

District academic curriculum. No music and art. Sports for grades 5 and 6. Minimal parent involvement.

Good teachers. However, the school tends to reward lower achieving students who make an improvement better than they reward children who fight like heck to maintain high scores and A and B grades over the duration of their enrollment in the school. The school is clean. Good principal. Poor communication between school and parents sometimes. We get notes announcing minimum days the day after my kid has the minimum day. One teacher pushes her political agenda on the 6 graders which is inappropriate. Otherwise really good teachers.
