This school is lacking a bit everywhere. There is no organization in the front office. Notices for school events get sent out very late making it hard for parents to plan. 2nd grade class is over crowded and the teacher is has issues controlling it. the 2nd grade teacher is overwhelmed and therefore has lacking of being calm and closed to the students. She yells, screams, takes away rest room privileges from all students even though it may be a few students who are having behaviorial issues. There is lack of homework especially math homework coming home. There is a tremendous amount of bullying. The prinicpal seems to be out of touch. No parental relationship is encouraged. Parents are getting irrate and frustrated with the entire school faculty. I see things changing for the worst for some faculty at this school.
There is no true support from the staff as it relates to children with social challenges. I was told by the principal,my child has exhausted her and she can not do anything more for him...wow
this school has a greate resding program in helping kids with that extra push the assiatant principal is great the principal needs to be more aprochable and all of the teacher that i know there are great they have shown care for my child and for our family
This school is showing improvement since they hired an assistant principal.
