The school states it maintains a serious approach to bullying. Teachers look the other way. After 'addressing' the problem, your child is no better off. Seek outside professional help. Don't rely on the school. Your child will be left to feel responsible.
The classes are overcrowded. There are 'temporary' classrooms. Library is to small for a teacher to bring a class in together. Due to space there are few books! Plan on bringing your child to the public library downtown. It lacks computers and other modern teaching equipment. It is a poor facility compared to other elementary schools in Manchester. The site was not meant to be a school - traffic flow of busses and walkers is dangerous. There is supposed to be a renovation (I fear economic times may waylay that). They teach to the CMT and forget about the individual child excelling in areas of natural ability. This is not the way to instill a love of learning in young children.
A very excellent school and i am proud that my daughter and son went there! Also, they might be or already are building an extra part to it!
