I agree with the negative comments below. There are issues with administration. I had issues with bullying as well. Principal never returned calls or emails. She was not either building when I arrived to meet with her. My child does not have special needs, however, I have observed issues with the special ed teacher. The idea of the organic meals is wonderful, however, many students do go home hungry as they are not accustomed to the healthy eating lifestyle. I love the lunchroom manager and chef! I cannot express how wonderful they are. My child loves the food.

The special needs teacher does not like to be told how to do her job, especially when its by the parent of the special needs child. The principal doesnt do anything but sot there and look pretty, the after school coordinator is power hungry and does things her way because ahe geys wht sje wants loke a whiny pre schooler as well as the administration from the 47th street building. Removing my child at the end of the school year. Not worth the tuition i pay for

My daughter attended this school. Unfortunately it didn't work out. There is a problem with bullying. Talked with staff several times. Attention was called to the problem, but the bullying continued. Change the lunch menu. It can still be organic and healthy. Make it Kid friendly. Big issue - some children wait until they get home to eat. I sent a bagged lunch with my daughter some days. Food had to be checked by staff (awkward). Yes I'm aware of the healthy eating and organic ideas behind this school, but they are not there yet. These issues need to be looked into..........to move forward

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
