Not a great school imo. Basically, what is wrong with public schools today. Lack of parent involvement. Kindergardeners riding themselves to school. Teacher admitted that most parents don't ever look at what would come home in the backpacks. Sad. Of course my child wasn't challenged. The place seemed like a zoo of dysfunction.

Our daughter has had a great experience at the school. The teachers are very helpful and the principal is outstanding. They curriculum is accomodating to various levels of student competence, allowing everyone to learn at their level.

This school was a major disappointment. My child had a disability and rather than work to help her overcome her disability, they continually punished her for it and were not supportive of her. If your child has a learning disability or behavioral disability I would NOT recommend this school.
