The teachers and staff are excellent. Everyone at this school has gone out of their way with valuable information and help.

Previous reviews are really outdated. Under the new leadership, the school environment has changed a lot. The first grade and Kindergarten programs do not provide a rigorous instruction unlike similar programs in other districts. A great bulk of instruction time is spent on mindless activities involving constant cutting and gluing without a real substance (for Math, LA, Projects, etc.). Mr. Eward Abato does not oversee the work of many of his teachers and/or refuses to admit that there are issues with a lack of communication, classroom management, and some teachers' abilities to differentiate instruction for advanced students. However, the school has a several programs to assist students with disabilities. Still, there are many parents who are not satisfied with the education their children are receiving at the school. As a result, they are considering other options.

We have had two children go through this school (one still in), one needed some extra help due to a slight disability. We have found the school to be helpful, and the teachers we have had have been a very positive experience in our childrens' life. We like it here.

This school is wonderful. We moved here because of the school system. Boy are we glad. My son is in second grade ADHD and PDD-NOS, he gets all the help he deserves. They really go out of their way to help. I love all his teachers. Unfortunately Principal Podgurski suffered a stroke and is no longer there. But The new principal Mrs Workman is absolutely great
