I like this school. Mrs Cummings is amazing. She is the assistant but should be the principal. She is understanding, calming and gets things done. If I have any issues, I can count on her to help in anyway she can. My son is in middle school this year. The teachers my son has this year are great too. I really like Mr. Orazco. They have lots of after school activities. When I come in the building, Mrs. Zeno in the office always has a smile on her face. My son got in a little trouble this year and his grades were dropping. Mrs. Cummings talk to him and his teachers worked with him to get his grades up. They really care at this school and it shows. If I had a complain about this school is that the PTO is not very good.
I don't know why these reviews are stating that they do not have textbooks. This school as plenty of textbooks. Although, aren't we as a society trying to go to more online and blended classrooms with technology? This school has excellent curriculum, teachers, support staff, and administration. They go above and beyond for all their students and families. They have after school tutoring that is FREE! They even have after school clubs that are free as well. They do home visits just to see how our family is doing. They take lots of field trips to make sure the students get real life experiences. I have nothing bad to say about this school. Keep up the good work.
DO NOT send your student to this school. Classrooms do not have textbooks or do not have enough for every student. Students cannot bring home a science book for fear some students will lose theirs. How are they supposed to learn?! When kids gets papers back they are not graded for correct work but effort. Corrections are supposed to be made during class periods and most of them are spent with some teachers yelling, kids getting pulled out, and presentations that aren't explained. At the start of the school year they were still painting, back to school night was unorganized, agendas were not passed out for more than a month. There are multiple unlicensed teachers in classrooms and students receive copious amounts of homework that do not get genuinely graded. I don't know how any child is to get help when these policies are not explained. A large group of students spend a lot of time in the office for trouble and they make it hard for other children to get any information. The administration is not present and many of the kids don't know who their principal is or the assistant principal.
My son attended on two separate occasions , for kindergarten and 2nd. I thought id give them a second chance because public school in our area doesn't rate well and my son has ADHD. Way too much homework he could not even keep up . He literally did homework from the time he came home until like 8 pm. They lost his homework binder at school and gave him An F for all assignments in it! I can't follow him to school , help my son ! It's on his IEP to have assistance turning homework in ! And they never let him make it up. I had to transfer him back to public so he would pass 2nd grade
This school is very unorganized. This year, they are suspending anybody for what they do no matter what. They do not keep up with files, have teachers every different month. I will not recommend your child to go to this school but the teaching part is great though. But the children acts up a lot and i do not see nothing changed about it.
