I can't believe this is still happening. I taught there in 2000! I felt like I was teaching in 1950. The Principal has little understanding of appropriate child development and teaching. I honestly cannot believe she has lasted this long. She treats staff unfairly and unprofessionally. At lunch time, students were expected to have silent lunches. I am not sure if this is still happening. How can you expect children to succeed when they have no ability to appropriately express themselves or socialize? Collaboration and communication were completely undervalued. How does this prepare children for the new millennium? I could write a novel on the issues regarding this school.

Teachers are great and always have a smile. The principal discipline and runs the school likes is 1960. She doesnt allow the students to be expose with nature or life lessons. The teachers are always walking on egg shells there due to her management. The year my student attend, I've never seen the principal being welcoming to the parents.

This is the worst school to attend. Administration doesn't not treat your children fairly and are very unprofessional!

Don't send your child to this school. The main problem is the management. Teachers are forced to do busy work instead of truly teaching the children. Also, referring inappropriate behavior to the office is considered unprofessional by the principal, so teachers avoid doing that. That leaves disruptive children hitting, kicking, spitting, cussing, etc. in the classroom with your child.
