I agree with the other reviewer. Once the new principal came in for the 2012-2013 school year things went downhill. Bullying is a big issue here. I had complained about it at least twice to the principal and nothing was ever done to resolve it. There are teachers who appear to not care about making sure that all the students are keeping up and learning as they should. I had volunteered to help in the classroom a few times and was completely appalled at the chaos and lack of respect shown to both the teachers and the other students as well. The kids appear to be out of control here and the service for kids with learning disabilities is lacking to say the least. Definitely not a school I would recommend. Just because they are building a new school does not mean the services, teachers, principal are going to be top notch. FYI, I had about 12 years of experience with this school and have seen the changes for the worst in only the last 3 years. It did used to be a good school. I don't anticipate it being good again until the leader gets replaced. I did end up pulling my son out to home school because of the constant bullying.

This school use to be 4 to 5 star. But with the introduction of their new principal, values, integrity and caring for the students has gone down the toilet. Bullying has become commonplace, along with sweeping it under the rug to not cause problems for the bullies. There are a couple teachers that should be replaced, due to just being plain lazy and not caring enough to help the kids whether it be with homework problems, or turning their back while kids are being picked on. If you send your kids to this school, I recommend as a parent to keep in touch with the teachers and staff to make sure your child is not ignored by teachers or bullied by kids. Hopefully the new construction of the school to be finished in 2015 will bring new fresh faces in the office staff and teacher staff.

I have 2 childen attending the school at this time and 1 who has already went through. The teachers and staff have always been available for questions or extra help and support. The children have an average amount of homework, they are not bogged down with hours each night. My children can usually do their home work in 20 mins or less, they are required to read each night on top of homework. My children come home in good spirits and are always eager to go back each day. The school is always welcoming to parents and love our input and ideas.
