I love this School for the variety of children and the warm of some of the teachers of the school. Also I didn't rate 10 becasuse my child been there for 2 Year, and the teacher of this year which she was new, didn't like when I show myself at school or any activity, I am a PTA Parent. It was better when Mr Robertzzi was there.

My child is being affected by teacher favoritism. Speaking to principal did not get us far. Contemplating switching to School # 8. Is very sad this is happening in our school system.

School six was a wonderful school in the fact that they made sure to praise children for their attendance and grades as well as reading progress in school. Recognizing students achievements is very important and a great motivator for the kids. Some of the teachers, at least the one my son had seem like they have been teaching for too long and have a horrible attitude and teaching style. Some newer friendlier teachers might help them out. I'm not sure how all of the other teachers were, but the teacher we had for first grade was no good. Other than that, the school is clean and they do provide fun activities for the kids like talent shows that they can participate in.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
