My son transferred to this school 2014-2015 school year. He constantly got bullied and picked on for the color of his skin. Students went so far as to call him the N word. He has never had a problem at any of his previous schools and everytime I tried to make an appointment to speak with the principal to get things straightened out she was never available until I threatned to report her to the school board she all of assuden was free. Needless to say it was a horrible experience for him as well as my family. I was greatly disappointed by this school and their principal.

This is a sweet nurturing environment. The pre-k has very well lit classrooms with super large windows. The Pre-k classrooms are well stocked and they have a lovely and an impressive Garden outside that the Parent Coordinator Cincy Yeung Lau, started. The Parent Coordinator is fantastic. The school is charming. The Pre-K has a nice playground to use each day. The school has cooking classes even for the lowest grades. The pre-k has a Dual Language program that is awesome. I recommend you take the time and check this school out. This a school with a community feel, warm and welcoming.

I been here for 4th and 5th grade and I don't feel left out when I just transfered. This school helps prepare me for middle school. Right now in middle school, I still reflect back on the fun I had in this school. The teachers and staffs are all really nice. My principles even took the time to get to know me. I really would highly recommend this school
