The reading program in this school is second to none. Truly excellent. I'm impressed with the quality of teaching and the way they hold each child's attention. The individual attention the children get is likewise impressive.
Both of my children attend the school and as far as acdemics I am very impressed, however the school bus is another story.We as parents had to fight to get a monitor on the bus and in the afternoon it still does not help.
my child has been going her since k1 he is now in 1st grade never had a problem yet my son is learning to read now he does a good job at it he counts by 2,5,10,3 and now he learning how to tell time so far so good only time will tell.......
my been going to school there for four years and been riding the bus. the school is little bit far, if someone live at mattapan or dorchester, it is a long ride other than that it's a safe ride. Nothing happened to him in term of violence. I really like the academical idea how they rate the children behavoir daily. Each color is for a different behavior. for example green for good, yellow for ok but needs some improvement, red is for bad. this kind of structure will let the parents aware how the kids acted in class for the day. I also like the idea on how the parents can participate in parent meeting almost every two months therefore the parents will have an idea what's going on in the school. There are some bad sides but the main thing is that Academically the school is excellent and I
