Worst school ever! The principle and teachers do not care your child. My child attended this school for 3 wks. He is in the 2nd grade and was being bullied. When brought up to the teacher and principle, they did not do anything when confronted several times. When I asked the teacher about my childs' progress, the teacher told me that they do not give homework to the children, they do not get tested weekly on spelling and reading. Please DO NOT put your child in this school if you care about your childs' education and safety. Thank You, an Involved Parent

This school has very dedicated teachers, however the school does not have much parental involvement. This hurts the school because parental involvement is very important. The has improved over the past two years and is now a C school, this goes to show that good leadership can make a difference. I am very proud of the progress made at this school and finally I am starting to see some stability.
