This is a great school. Very diverse group of students from all etnic and economic backgrounds. Teachers are very good and fair. Many special programs including Spanish, Venture in schools(drama), After school CARE academy. This school gives kids a real world experience. Everyone is not identical nor should they be. Principal is very firm but caring, office staff very helpful. PTA is very active and offer many bonuses for kids. My daughter has gone here for 6 years and I have been pleased.
