The principal is terriffic! But there is alot of work that needs to be done on the student and teacher level. My child was 'bored' most of the time. Alot of time is spent helping the slower students and not enough time is spent challenging the rest. The dress and conduct codes are there but minimally enforced. The majority of students showing up for school un showered and still in their pajamas! The language during lunch time is horrid and nothing is done. Great ideas coming from the top...gets lost in translation as it filters down.

I love this school it has good one- on- one student teacher time during classes. that is amazing how that can be seeing as I have come from Texas;where the average student numbers per classes were 40-50 kids in one classroom.
