Teachers are weighed down with unrealistic expectations from the principal. Students in general ed are not given the same attention as students in the gifted and talented classrooms. The principal only cares about scores and numbers. Teachers try but are held back from being the best because of the strict standards that are impossible to meet. Don't even think about ever seeing creative crafts or art from your child, this is a strict, study to test-driven school. Many of the ICT teachers don't have control of their classrooms, many incidents of bullying and rough horseplay in the younger grades are a constant issue. This school is way over crowded and the overall morale has dimmed. Teachers are exhausted, stressed and are literally pushing the kids out the door to their parents during dismissal. Many don't want to be bothered and are checked out. Trips are very limited if ever and are dull. The behavior with many of the younger grades are appalling my son has been harassed more than once since kindergarten with the same kids he continues to be placed with, he's now in second grade. If you are zoned to this school try and get another address to have your child attend a different school, This is not a good school!!!!

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
Younger grades are constantly faced with bullying, however, the principal rarely acknowledges most of the cases brought up as actual bullying because she only goes by the DOE's exact definition of bullying. Yup shes a tool!


Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
It's like pulling teeth to get any services but that's an issue with the DOE not with just this school

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Parents take the principal as a joke they talk behind her back and don't listen to her during assemblies. She isn't respected because of her cold approach to the children.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
Teachers are overwhelmed and very few have the time to actually care about the well-being of each student.


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Principal blocks them from being great teachers.

Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
Way too much homework from Both ELA and Math. The teachers are forced by the principal to give an overload assignments. Your child will not have any time to do much other than homework everyday.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
They are held back from doing their job because of curriculum. This is a teach to the test school.


Amount of homework: Disagree

I believe in family time. In the majority of households now, most parents work. We have a very small amount of time with our children in the evening and it is spent arguing over homework and to be quite honest, I do not understand most of the common core math.

This is a teach to the test school. It did not seem this way when I enrolled my child, but over the years that is exactly what it has become. The curriculum is based on the state test. All ELA and Math. Science is the minimum allowed per DOE. Music has been severely limited. Art and Foreign Language cut completely in the 4th grade. It is very sad that what brought us here has been eliminated. The teachers are terrific, but the administration is very cold and not open for change. Their way only.
