This school is the worst school I have seen in a very long time. my son is a first grader and he was failing and no one took the time to reach out to me until the end of the second semester by sending me a report card. I feel that his teacher did not care for his learning. My son has ADHD and I do not want any special treatment but they never helped him and all they wanted was to have him under meds and that would not happen with me. I hate this school.

Listen maybe last year 2008 this school was like that they yelled at the students and everything. My kids hated being told to rush for lunch and to 'shut up' but now!!1 under Joyce Buntin wow the love and respect and kindness is back! the cafeteria workers dont rush my kids to eat or yell at them and you dont see the unhappiness of the students like last year.. Joyce Buntin is wonderful!! and we should all be very grateful that someone of her caliber is running this school now all we have to get is playground equipment and a coach that wants team sports and to be competitive! i drive my kids 25 minutes to go to school there only because of Joyce Buntin !! hooray to this great principal!

This school is horrible!! I leave a block from the school and refuse to send my daughter!! They have no sense of direction or communication. My daughter was bullied with the awareness of the Principal and teacher...Nothing was done about it. I will pay whatever before I send my child back to this school.

I just moved into this school dist. I did not want to put my son in ips schools, but as a single mom i could no longer aford the tuition at St. Michaels Catholic School. This school was exactly what a i pictured it to be. This school has no direction, the children just seem to run all around the school at the end of the day, and in the morring. There seems to be no displiyne in this school what so ever! my child will not be going to this school nexy year. I will work 2 jobs to keep him out of school 61!!!!
