If you want a positive outlook on this school you may need to look elsewhere. There are very few teachers including the principal who are positive about making this school a better place for children. My children are the minority here and they do get bullied on a weekly basis. They are told by their teachers that they shouldn t tattle, so nothing gets settled. My youngest's Kindergarten teachers yell at their students and reflect on the students in a very negative manner. My 2nd graders teacher Mrs. Ferguson is an extremely well rounded, positive, and patient teacher! She and the few other teachers that try to help this school are the only thing good about it. The school in general starts 15 min to 20 min earlier than any other school and they seem more focused on getting kids to school on time than dealing with negative behaviors that keep my children from learning in a safe environment.
Our son's kindergarten experience in 2007-2008 was outstanding. It far exceeded our expectations and a lifelong learner has been created. He's excited about 1st grade and his younger sister is ready to go there too.
This school doesn't offer any extra cirriculums for their children. Unfortunately, my child has to attend this school another year. I think the school should get knocked down and rebuilt. Please add an auditorium!!!!!!
