This is a great school. Could use a revamp in the administration and teacher communication with parents. Many of the the teachers lack important communication with parents. It is a shame that the administration is not on top of that. Many teachers do not follow through with what they inform parents that will be done in the classroom. Teachers seem to be overwhelmed with their personal life and managing a classroom. There tends to be a lot of "slacking" as the year progresses. It is a shame.
