While there are some well-meaning teachers and staff at this school, there are some extreme problems, including: - Lack of responsiveness to student needs. Getting anything addressed or accomplished is difficult. - Unresolved allegations of student abuse. - Poor academic standards. The school may show improvement, but it has a long way to go. - The school structure and grounds are shabby.
This school has gone down tremendously since the last principal left. The new staff is rude and have no home training. They act as if these children are animals and they can talk to them any kind of way. I have two children currently as this school and this will be their last year. I refuse for my children to see unprofessionalism from the staff that are suppose to be inspirational. I advise any parents to call the BOE and not get into a tongue wrestling match with the sorry staff.
My son transferred to this school halfway during 3rd grade. The principal and teachers were very welcoming. The parent feedback is excellent: teacher and principal were always available by phone or email. My concerns were always addressed promptly. The academics are awesome. My son is now thriving in the school's gifted program. He enjoys the challenge and the support of the students and faculty. I'm very pleased with this school!
