The school is great when it comes to the teachers and some support staff. I do believe that the school tends to favor some Hispanics families and ignore the other types of families in the school. The PTA does the typical fundraisers without any consideration for other families who, for example who prefer not to give their kids junk food, or just host movie nights that appeal to very young kids. They want volunteers but when you do volunteer theres no direction and very little appreciation. They rarely ask for help just so that they can complain they don't receive any help, I feel like you if step on the wrong toes, your child is doomed, so try not voice your opinion or make a small change cause its not worth the aggravation

This school is a very nice place to work. The staff is very caring and knowledgeable and the related service providers (OT,PT, Speech, Counseling, etc.) are very dedicated and involved. There are lots of programs that the kids can get involved in both during school hours and also in after school. The PTA is wonderful with activities for the kids, raising money for the school and also providing support to the staff.

Registering a child to Kindergarten is a nightmare at this school! The ONLY hours they will allow you to do it is 9-11am and not a minute later. And if you can't make it at that time, o well, too bad for you and your child. So many of us, parents and caregivers, work at those hours and can NEVER make it in time for the registration. I sincerely hope that this can and will be changed.
