- a
This is not a disability-friendly school. If you have a child, particularly one that performs well academically, that needs services for a particular disability, or accommodations for ADHD or ASD, you will have extreme difficulties. There is no understanding of ASD among the general ed staff or administration, thus a child is disciplined by exclusion for behavior consistent with their disability. Their internal selection processes and attitudes are discriminatory to students with 504/IEP plans. The administration is unwilling to listen to parents or effect positive change. The goal seems to be to drive out problem students. There are too many students in the classrooms. The driving force appears to be financial. Reduce costs at any expense to the children and increase revenue by packing the classrooms. The advanced classes are so limited that students testing in the 99th percentile are excluded from them.

Handles bullying effectively: Disagree


- a
Isn't great, but I guess it could be worse. There seems to be a mindset that it doesn't happen here, so nothing is done.


Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
Only with a strong advocacy from a parent.

Effective school leaders: Disagree


- a
Stubbornly narrow-minded, unwilling to comprehend disabilities that children struggle with, inflexible, unwilling to work with parents.

Develops character: Disagree


- a
My children have experienced or observed bulllying, favoritism, lack of compassion for disabilities from students, staff and administration at this school, so I do not believe they do.


Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
Generally they are good. There are a few notable, quite bad, exceptions.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Frequently busy work that takes too much time. Very dependent on the teacher.



- a
High stakes standardized testing seems to be most important, even at primary grade levels. High student teacher ratio does not allow students to receive the attention they need.


Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
There is nothing overwhelming about the teachers at this school. Some are great, some are not, much like anywhere you go.

Amount of homework: no rating


- a
Homework is not long but it is "busy work" and I wonder what value students are getting out of it.
