My son was in this school through 6-8th grade and we had an AMZING time, until about 8th grade. The math teacher is VERY tough, more than once she threatened my son when he didn't know the answers. Multiple parents have complained about her throwing pens at the students. The counselor is a nightmare she convinced me to send my child to a horrible school where he gets bullied. The principle is amazing and so supportive. I would have loved to keep my child in this school but the Math teacher for 8th grade needs to be REMOVED ! And lose her license

Teachers here are very committed. Many come from Ivy League schools and routinely go beyond the call of duty in their teaching and reaching out to kids. Instruction is excellent and creative. Students are known well by their teachers and don't fall through the cracks. Excellent arts program. Jill Herman, former principal, put this school on the map. Very diverse. Great atmosphere. I wish I taught here.
