Too many bad incidents! This school gives me nightmares and sleepless nights. Very poor supervision, safety and security issues and very careless with emergency situations. The entire school staff from the principal down needs retraining and investigated!

An incident at the school 04/2012 proved to be a deciding factor as to why I would never allow my son to continue at this school. During a birthday party a parent stole my wallet and ran up my credit cards. After my investigation, I saw the parent at the school and did a citizen s arrest. I told the security guard to call the police; however, he refused. The vice principal came in the room and said that she would not call either since this had nothing to do with the school. Mind you I had the parent with handcuffs yoked up in the corner. A physical altercation does not equal police involvement? It was unreal. School staff are the pits and it does not appear there is any leadership in the school at all. A staff member told me that a teacher was hit by a student and the vice principal refused to call the police. As a result the teacher was injured and had to go out on leave. If this is the kind of leadership that occurs at this school than children should not be in this environment.

The teachers are okay, they do not assign enough h.w. and the curriculum is not challenging. They do have a excellent parent teacher coordinator,Ms. Santana that is totally helpful. They also do not have enough options for after-school programs

Ms. Roney the assistant principal is very well informed and tries to help out as much as possible. The school in and of itself needs a lot of work. They need, need, need more programs for the kids (after school, extracurricular, anything would be an improvement.) Children who are advanced end up stuck. You are left having to fend for yourself. At this school, the parents have to be the boss and really fight and be an advocate for your child or else they will end up being just another number. Inspite of the issues you still have some amazing teachers. Ms. Jones and Ms. Best are awsome. They are the only reason why my child is still in the school!!
