Unfortunately my daughter is in this school :(. This place is falling in peaces (bathrooms and gym are the worst, you can see fiberglass falling from the ceilling while our children eat) everyday they found rat poop and big cacaroaches everywhere.

sorry to say but from my bitter experience all I can say is that the nurse and principle are not smart enough to understand the psychology of little ones

My daughter was bullied at this school, it was reported and teh teacher and principle took no action. My daughter dreaded having to go to 4th grade this year. So we decided to move just so we could change schools.

As a Kindergarten teacher at this I can honestly say that we arent doing everything reasonably possibly to prepare our children. Our Test Scores are low and we need parents to help. Our Administrator have told us in meetings that our school is about appearance and this everything is politcal. I think its sad that my students are being used as pawns and not getting the attention they deserve while under our care.
