For Mother's Day the art teacher had the children color the words "Happy Mother's Day" in a coloring book and then rip the page out of the book. That was it. The lack of effort and creativity is unbelievable! The front office is totally disorganized and they assigned my child to three different teachers in one month. One day, they assigned her to two different grades. Then we got a letter in the mail saying that she was assigned to yet another different teacher. The poor child was crying, she loved her first teacher and had no idea why she kept being told she no longer had that teacher. The principal is extremely defensive and refuses to see that there is a problem. The place is a zoo.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
The principal is a bully and hates parental involvement.


Supports LD students: Strongly disagree

They have no tutoring and no special help for any child.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree

The principal is a joke. Don't dare question her or she will tell you to get out.

Develops character: Neutral


- a
I have no idea. I see no attempt at developing character.


Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

Her current teacher is excellent. Her teacher last year was a lost cause.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
I never know if my child has homework.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
None whatsoever as principal has no leadership by hiding all the time from students and parents




- a
Principal is extremely incompetent and is usually hiding in her office from parents. I observed a staff member and parents both being shouted down being shouted down in the office in front of parents and children by her. Avoid this school and get a zone variance if at all possible to Treem next door. My child loves it there as the principal is available to parents and is seen interacting with kids much of the time

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
My children are learning but I don't know the teachers because I not allowed to walk around the school.
