I was a temporarily assigned teacher there for several months. I enjoyed the stay there. I felt the principal was very nurturing and committed to the students. His door was constantly open and the students felt comfortable going to him. The only issue I noticed was that the school had several Art genres when it started and are now down to a few. The directory has not been revised and may be misleading to students.

First of all, I am a parent. This school is a joke. No textbooks, rude personnel, and too much emphasis on peer relationships amongst the school's officials. The Principal, Mr. Sanchez doesn't do enough to see that the students are learning, and is not very accessible by parents. The majority of the teacher's are horrible. If I had known what an utter waste of time this school truly was, my child would not be there.
