where to start I'll start at the top the principal mrs.Rizzo. she leads the parents on to things that she was handling a situation in which he is not.she had her hand picked group of students in which she sees no wrongdoing in them and then has some students in which she has singled out and makes in her job to let the students know that she is on them for what they're wearing when they should be and who this should be talking too while her hand picked groupies can wear say and do as they choose with no consequences. a few of her groupies are the biggest bully in the school and are allowed to pick on children have their friends pick on them and nothing happens to the bullies because miss Rizzo sees no wrongdoing and then makes the student that is being bullied apologize to them hello unfair and uncivilized. her hand picked groupies are you in the Upper hands in every situation so the bullied child feels so alone and unable to seek help.I think it is time for a change any new principal stricter rules in which the superintendent needs to get his A game on and take care of it truly yours apparent

My child has been in this school for less then one school year so far my child has went from being a a to c student in the last school to failing everything here. I have not seen one teacher call me or even offer my child extra help. I think the part that has disturbed me most is the lack of communication the staff has had with me on my childs needs.So all and all I dont think you are doing all you can to communicate with parents or pay attention to what a childs needs are.

I have to agree that the school is secure, well run, pleasant atmosphere and good community. The children are responsible for their own work, and that's good. Teachers are attentive, always return my calls, answer my notes. They are polite and look out for the child's emotional well being (not embarrassing them on personal issues, but guiding towards good behavoir) as well as academic well being. The teachers go out of their way to help the children become acadmeically successful.

The principal of this school get very involved with the students. She is always there to help children as well as parents with any concerns. Most of the teachers are very willing to talk to parents to make a childs learning a success. Extracurricular activities are offered but often the parents don't find out about them. Some kind of news letter should be sent home to make parents aware of these activities. Children of today tend to be lazy and not get involved with such things.
