This a great school. The teachers genuinely care about the students. The school has rules in place to ensure that the students are safe at all times. They communicate with parents in an efficient manner and are always happy to address any concerns that parents may have. My son loves his school.

I would recommend that the principal should have a little talk with the securities staff. Most of them are not NICE (toward students and parents). They act like they are somebody who running school system.

I have mixed feelings about this school. On the one hand, my daughters teacher is absolutely amazing, he motivates, educates and cares deeply about teaching his students. On the other hand, there are many children here from deprived and undisciplined homes and unfortunately the discipline here just isn't adequate. The head believes in second, third and even 15th chances and this means that the teachers have no authority to affect change. Without consequences, why should kids behave. It's a shame, the potential is there and the school could be so much more. The arts programs here are great and the kids put on some shows that demonstrate real enthusiasm and willingness to participate. Hats off to the staff that makes these things happen.

This school is neutral. The students here cause lots drama and extra thiings to the class. i would know that because my son has told me all about. But what keeps the school at 2 stars are the amazing teachers who give lots of help and support.

I had a bad experience troughout the 5th grade .My son was constantly tormented by a group of bullies,and though several students testified for it there was no concrete steps taken to prevent it,from he school authorities.The counseller in fact at one point suggested tat I talk to the bullie's parents ! What keeps it going for the school is the excellent teaching staff.particularly a 6th grade teacher ,Mr.Alfred Raya,who was fortunatley my son's teacher.A fine teacher and an excellent motivator.
