This is the worst school ever!! My son was a transfer in the middle of the school year and the nightmare began... This school had fights from day 1 kids being jumped, bullied and teachers that were consistently on the cell phones, walking out of the classroom while the are teaching students due to the disruptions from other kids that get sent to the office and all they did was return the student to the classroom.
Worst school ever! Staff and Principal rude, unprofessional, and allow a lack of discipline that is appalling! My daughter was punched by a little boy the first day of school, shoved by one the third, and had two other altercations by day four, went to office to resolve and found other children from her class BEGGING not to have to attend (all for similar reasons) - was told Principal would call me, she did and proceeded to justify and then yelled at and over me when I told her there is no justification for this happening to my 8 yr old and that the school needs to be more proactive then reactive. I will be moving my child a.s.a.p, she isn't able to learn in this environment, nor is she safe.
It was a horrible start this year. Administration and staff were in two different worlds. Parents ranting and nothing,no explanation but contact the county. This school is so over crowded. The language barriers do affect the students . Finally they extended the kindergarten class to full day after half the year was over. Over 36 five year olds to one teacher in 2 1/2 hours was wasteful time for parents and students.
This school is horrible, the staff is inconsistent. There is a huge communication gap within the administrators, at events it seems unorganized. There are always older kids who do not attend there hanging out on the campus and I see many young children wondering unsupervised.
This school is extremenly over crowded and safety is a main concern at this point. There are also alot of older middle and high school students 'running' through the school with no one knowing they are there. Parent involvement is low and that may be due to lnguage barriers. I am looking at moving to get zoned for a better school.
