I had a bad experience at this school with my son. I had to move to another city because of the director's assistant.

Sadly not a welcoming or inclusive school! Only a month into 2nd grade and a sweet little boy can be turned into a bully, property depredator and threatened to be taken away from parents. Kids started making fun of his last name on the first day of school, to a point where he cried to have the name tag (used for identification at pickup) taken out of the car's windshield. It was his first year at this school and given the unwelcoming bullying situation and normal stress in a new environment, one day, he pulled on the cork of a cork board and ripped a piece of it. He was then written a warning for property destruction. At recess, he started calling the other kids, who were making fun of his last name, "Square Head” and again he was called in the office and accused of bully and asked if he wanted to be taken away from his mother. He was told if he kept with the bad behavior his mother could lose custody of him. The poor kid became devastated and defensive. We felt the difference in treatment with an immigrant family and student. The seriousness of the facts were denied and overlooked by school authorities, which left us with no choice but to move to a nearby city to change school, since our boy verbalized that he would rather die than go to school.

No they are close minded and let professional relationships get in the way. SPECIAL ED DEPT IS LACKING

The principals do not get along. Amy's moods change like a flick of a switch. Staff in inexperienced. Budget cuts wipe out staff that students need. It's a big mess

95% of the teachers are great and encourage Parent involvement always that one that tries to spoil the bunch and we has just hasn't kept up with social skills to work with parents. Principal is O.K. but turns a blind I when it comes to personality complaints about teachers. Curriculum could be a lot more ambitious and won't complete well with advanced academic schools. Vice Principal is very involved and great and I believe the heart of the school. Class rooms size is fine, every class my children had an assistant to help with the work load.

It is crowded, however I have never felt that the size of the school detracted from the overall preformance. Music and Art progams are admirable at all levels.

over crowded, great art & music program, very old building
