This school is a nightmare!! I had both my boys at this school and have been very disappointed. The staff is over worked & many of the kids have behavioral problems that are not addressed. kindergarten children suspended on a regular basis not helped with behavioral problems that get them suspended creating a horrible learning environment for those kids that are trying to learn. Check out their ratings for attendance and suspension. Huge issues with this school. I was a parent volunteer. We got 5 people at most meetings & very little help for special events. Asking for help from the Admin staff is like talking to the wall. They always seem to "have their hands tied".I am a very involved parent & have never been more disappointed in the public school system. I pulled them both out. I work two jobs to put them thru private school & it is worth every penny! If you have the ability to keep out of this school go anywhere else! Everyone seems nice when you visit but look behind the scenes. Talk to the parents waiting outside to pick up their kids, watch the activity; you will see for yourself. Many of them have to go here, too many kids in area schools so no school of choice option.

My daughter has gone to this school the past 2 years and have had nothing but problems. Problems ranging from leaving her at the bus stop, losing kids in school events, not letting her wear a sweater because it didnt have a school logo on it (although her uniform did!) giving medication without parental consent, not addressing bullying properly (not only did she not want to go to school anymore but i had to have meetings with staff and contacted dean, nothing.) If it wasnt for the few teachers that helped I would've never let her stay nor recommend to anyone.

I've had nothing but problems then when you try to fix it they give you a hard time but i do have to say that the school teachers themselves are so far wonderful but as for the bus system it stinks thats where the problem comes in.The principal is a great person. But like i said the bus system is no good.
