The problem with this school is that the students are out of control. The school is beautiful on the inside and outside, but it is not a condusive environment for children to learn. In order to learn, we have to have control of the students. This is not just a problem at this school, but at many others. A teacher can't teach unless she has control of the classroom. We need to develop a plan to change the environment, so our children can learn. A bunch of children should never be able to jump on one student in school. Fights exist to often, then not and no one wants to take responsibility. I have seen to many people that don't want to get involved. These are our children. We need to be involved parents and teacher that set hire standards for our children. -Mrs. Peace

The school it self is great and the teachers. My son and i loved it. The office staff was always mean and not very helpfull, always losing important forms. However some teachers do need more help than the office staff.
