The school is not in a safe area. It would be wise to keep your child on a scedule of when and where to pick him or her up. The school campus is very open and visitors rarely get noticed. The staff is friendly however. And I can see the challenges that they face in this area. The level of parent involvement seems low. Its as if the teachers can not get the parents attention. This will only reflect on the students attitude. However for the children the mood is good for the most part. After school saftey should be a big concern.
