This school is horrible. My child was excited for learning, wanted to do so much with it until the teacher crushed it. She didn't pay any attention what so ever to my child instead on the problem child. My child would bring home work that she did at school and it would be half finished or wrong. When asked if the teacher looked over it, she said that the teacher was to busy, talking to other teachers, and didn't care to or even help when she put her hand up. Even complained to the teacher about it and she did nothing about it. Had to pull my child from her class. Wasn't happy at all. Plus no extra actives for the kids and no P.T.A. Wouldn't recommend this school to any child.

My kids attend this school and they love it. There are amazing teachers and not so good teachers, just like any other school. On the most positive side, the principal is amazing. There is no one like her in the world. When teachers feel good where they work, they transmit that positive energy into the children, and this is what is going on at this school. One concern I have is that the program needs to be more challenging for children who are on or above the standards. Many kids don't get support at home and as a result, they fall behind. Too much time is dedicated to this students. I think kids who are at the high end should get the same attention so they don't become bored.
