The teachers and the administration are really nice. The school is modern, it uses modern technology to teach. The teachers have websites, with information. All the teachers, administrators and the district emails the parents everything. All the teachers communicate their students' needs, and work together for the best possible solutions. My youngest started going there when he turned, 3 for special education preschool. They create short and long term plans for him, and they let me know about all the resources available to him. My oldest, loves it, he is in kindergarten.

This school provides a solid foundation of education and fosters a strong, positive learning community. The new administration is beloved by parents and students, and the teachers are professional, loving individuals who are truly skilled in their craft.

I think the time past since earlier reviews and the change in administrators improved the school.

this school has great teachers, but lacks technology and upgrades which enhance learning. A military atmosphere is employed in this overcrowded and outdated school.

The school is clearly far more concerned with test scores and 'numbers' than they are with the student's happiness or providing an environment that fosters an interest in further education. The principal hasn't even the slightest semblance of empathy for her students or their parents and the teachers clearly follow her lead. I couldn't pull my child out of the school fast enough. If you want a child that will follow orders blindly, not think for him/herself, and fear their superiors; then this is the school for you. Otherwise, I strongly advise that you look into private schools in the area.

Schoolwork tends to be difficult for younger kids. There is no time for social activity. Recess consists of more work if outside recess is not available. The children have to sit in the cafeteria before school starts and are not allowed to talk. Very disappointed and disturbed of what goes on at this school.
