Unsatisfactory indeed...my child has been having trouble since he has started. I am in the process of moving just so my child can have a possible chance in the future. There are not many teachers who are willing to go a little extra. Sad to say that children do not have enough interaction with the teachers. I would NOT recommend this school at all. ( I have even tried to have a "school choice" but the BOE does not even bother to let you know about your status, and when you do ask they have staff that say they don't know what you are talking about.) Can not say that 2011 is better than 2005.

On a scale from 1-10, I give this school a -1. They are very poor in keeping parents informed, poor in the safety of the kids, and they do not hold themselves accountable or responsible when they make a mistake where your child is concerned, they try to make it seem as if it's your childs fault when in fact the school made a mistake. There are also teachers, whom I've witnessed with my own eyes and ears, that play favorites to other students. There is a teacher who will not give you a conference when you ask for one, I personally asked this teacher 5 times for a meeting regarding my son, she never responded. I finally went to her class myself to discuss my child, I asked her if he could get help after school and she told me she didn't have time.

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.
