I believe costley lack discipline also. The student have no real consequences for their actions. If suspended and attend school they are sometime let in even though they have been suspended. No real punishment. As well as no real insentive that will motivate them to do better. I would not recommend this school. Although the teacher do the best they can but without administrative support your child will only go but so far. I moved my child to another school.
I think this school is good for the students the events they have is very interresting and their meal for breakfest and lunch is very healthy and good for the children and they give the children a 5 step start to life:)
This school is definitely lacking in consequences for bad academic as well as behavior. Teachers have very little control over their classes. The children are undisciplined and rowdy. Academic deadlines are not met. If at all possible, do not enroll your child at this school. Before entering 6th grade, if you have to remain in the area, move your child to one of the schools of the arts before they have to audition to gain entrance, otherwise, unless you plan to admit your child(ren) into private school, the choices are limited.
