I wouldn't recommend sending your pet rock to this school let alone your child. It was a great school until it became a turnaround school, the principal and vice principal are arrogant condescending jackasses that couldn't administrate themselves out of a paper bag. Most of the teachers could care less about your child, they just show up for the paycheck. Your child's teacher will most likely change sometime during the school year without any notification. I have a child with special needs and was sent a video taken by another parent of a teacher mistreating my child shortly after getting off the bus, the principal couldn't have cared less and the teacher is still working there. Send your child at your own risk!
Our home is zoned for this school, but I cannot in good conscience send my child there. We are US citizens, and do not speak Spanish, but for all intents and purposes, this is a Spanish-speaking only school. By the school's own stats, 85.7% of the students have limited English proficiency! This is unacceptable! This school is a shining example of why public education does not work.
my daughther goes to this school shes in kindergarten the teacher she has isnt been having problems with her since day 1 done reports to the office then comes out saying its the parents they dont coaporate but she doesnt listen my daughther as asthma she made her take off her long sleeve shirt its winter time very disapoited with this teacher didnt have so many problems last year in pre-k
One of the most well-run schools in the system. The principal is industrious and creative. The teachers are likewise. The children are well-taught and well-behaved. The office staff are helpful. A beautiful building and an excellent learning environment.
Very poor office communications and not taking responsibilities for their actions blaming some one else for their faults and not themselves to handle the situation, the teachers are excellent but the office staff and Vice principle poor.
