Love the school, but you have some teachers there who is not willing to take time out with the kids. I have.been to the school and witness some teachers pulling on kids in a not so apporite way.you have teachers who just send the kids to the office for anything just not taking time out with.the kids.i feel of you dont have the Patience with the kids then,its time to go in a different feild. It's not all the teacher but its enuff of them that will give this good school a bad rep.....

The school has very good academic programs. Yes! this school has a balance and ratio of children problem....Some of the staff are top notch , But some of the staff is there for the ride and think that the kids should do their work for them!! these staff members are not cut out to teach this grade level....

I really love this school academically speaking. The only problem I have had with this school is the balance and ratio of the children, 2 years in a row neither of my children had 1 sengle peer in their classrooms to relate to. The staff and programs available at this school are top notch.
