The school is a Montessori school and they will have a brand new building in August 2008. Our child is in kindergarten and loves it. Her teacher is very good and the teacher she will have next year is very good as well. The school is becoming more racially and economically diverse, which is very important to us as we cherish diversity. There are a variety of neighborhoods that send children to this school. We have met several parents who are very involved in the school. This school has a way to go, but it has great potential. My wife and I are professionals and middle class and we are giving the school a try and suggest you consider it as well.
My daughter attended this school from 2001-2003. Some of the teachers that I experienced were not attentive of student's needs. I was forced on several occasions to plea for my daughter to receive extra help.
This is our neighborhood school, and we unknowingly sent our daughter there this year. We will not be returning next year. There are income restrictions, so we will probably have to pay for the tutoring out-of-pocket. Next year I would prefer to spend my money on tuition for a different school! There is absolutely NO incentive for a middle/upper-class family to send their child here. They are posturing to be a Montessori program next year, but they will still be a neighborhood school, so count us out.
