Overall, this is a great school. The administration and teachers all try hard to make the experience work for the kids. They have a diverse community (look at the ethnic mix) and provide lots of clubs, music, sports and extra activities. The school has only been around for 2 years and like any start-up there were hiccups. For the most part, lots of those glitches have been worked through. I never had issues with Schoolnotes or Parent Connect and always knew what my son's progress, homework or happening was. They make effective use of the website and email to communicate. They have some really great teachers who really care about the kids and are very enthusiastic. Some of the veterans are mentoring the newer ones. The newer teachers can use some help on the patience side but overall...they are energetic and enthusiastic bunch.
There seems to be a communication gap between teachers, parents and the principal. The school uses ParentConnect to provide details of student progress. The teachers seem to be overwhelmed with the education requirements and very defensive. I had to contact the principal to get a teacher to return my calls. Leadership seems to be lacking and teacher and student morale appears to be down.
