The principal appears to be a yes woman. When teachers call out there are usually no substitutes the children either sit in on other class which is not productive because the class is over crowed so no one is learning or they are sent to the small dance rm during a dance class. The district is horrible we put the super in office and can't even speak to her that is mind boggling. Paaas used to be better they used to have auditions to get in now its just whatever.

Mrs.Ford the dance teacher she did a GREAT job before they took the program away from her and gave it to a younger teacher. I feel the children did more with her as a dance teacher

Some teachers cannot control their classrooms and some teachers act just as childish ads the children.

The staff seems like they do not want to call parents in to be accountable for there kids behavior.

I feel the students get enough homework but the teachers could coordinate technical projects with more time in between each

This school has great potential. It would be great if the district would support it 100% like it supports the other schools in the district. The principal of the school is dedicated, but clearly in over her head as repeated request for vice principal goes unanswered. The school is a grade 7-12 and it makes no sense that the school is understaffed and in a building that is way to small for the number of students and programs that should be available to the students at a Performing Arts School.

Great school with dedicated teachers, staff and principal. I would highly recommend it. The best year to enter is in the 7th grade where you have the greatest opportunity to be accepted. Must fill out an application in the 6th grade year and also audition. The classroom size is from 12-18.
