This school is lacking in many areas. There is very little parent involvement at this school and the school has no idea how to go about getting any. Coming from a school with heavy parent involvement my enthusiam for volunteering was greeted with confusions. It seemed neither wanted and hardly excepted. The school has no clear disciplinary plan. Children with behavior problems are allowed to disrupt class rooms. My child has come home complaining of feeling sick and though having been to the nurse the school doesn't notify parents. This is yet another public school that teaches for children to take a test not to give them help to gain knowledge. My child was exposed to a teacher that had no idea how to discipline without screaming at the top of her lungs and she had absolutely no control over the class room. I was very unhappy with this school and have taken my kids out of it.
