My children went to this school I would highly urge parents not to let your children go her the school does not care if your child learns or not they will just pass them on and make it the next schools problem. The teachers are not teaching the kids properly. It is very sad that my children are leaning what they should be at their age.

I went to school here when I was a kid and I turned out just fine. As a matter of fact I was able to acquire my ged at age 16. Work and pursue a nursing career. Now, my thoughts are that the teachers do the best they can but parents need to participate in there children's education for success. Now it's been over 20 years since I attended this school but same rules apply no matter what school your child attends. I was fortunate enough to have been ta ught by some of the greatest teachers in that school ehom I assume hsve retired since then but have been replaced with new teachers all with the same goals in mind. Giving your children the best education possible.

This is the worst school. This school promotes all children regardless if the child is failing. They seem to just pass them along and make it the next schools problem. Coming here was the worst mistake please be very careful sending your children to this horrible horrible school!!

At this school every child regardless of their socio-economic standing, grade level, or skill level is treated fairly and given the best education and foundation possible. There is an exceptional faculty and staff who give freely of their time before and after school as well as in the community all for the benfit of the children. Parents are encouraged to come into the school and be a part of their child's education (all though it does seem to be just one select group of parents who take this opportunity to heart and participate). The administration always welcomes parent involvement and questions and does their best to resolve any and all problems, questions, etc as they arise. I have had 2 children move through this school and onto Middle & High school and I have 2 more who are on the way and I am grateful for the faculty & staff!

My opinion of this school is that they do not pay attention to the things that the parents address.I think they should use more discipline.My child goes to this school and i cannot wait to take him out.They are way behind academically,by a grade level or better.

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.
