Lazy staff, great teachers but they come and go quickly it seems. They show up as a 2 red school for a well deserved reason. The administration is lacking common sense. They protect bullies and punish victims. If you have a special needs child, even with years of documentation on health and academics, they won't lift a finger. Only go here while waiting to get in to a charter school. If the teachers won't stay, there's probably more going on than even the idiocy a parent sees in an incompetent administration.

This school is WONDEFUL. The teachers enjoy what they are doing and it really shows. My kids love going and dont fight me in the mornings to go to this school. We moved from out of state and were scared about the adjustment. The teachers were friendly and helped my children fit right in. I would recommend this school :)

The entire staff is devoted to our children. My daughter lvoes to go to school. As parents, we love the quality of education she receives. We are very pleased with the teacher and staff...the principal is by far a leader in his field. The office door is always open to parents and children alike.
