Good school very freindly! Very little parent involment. Teachers do not like to participate in fund raising. My son has gone here for 2 years and the problem in the classroom that I see is they are always pulling them out to do different activities so the kids always seem lost and dont know what is going on. Test scores have dropped in the last few years. which makes me wonder what else is going on!
