I would not recommend this school to anyone. If you live in the area, please try to send your children to another school. There are good teachers at this school but the problem is the administration and district. The admin does very few things to reward or encourage the children. Things are promised and do not come through. The children are drilled on TCAP but there is no motivation for them. Children with SEVERE behavior problems are allowed to return and run the whole clasroom. Disruptions in learning are not rectified and do not believe there is a culture of learning present. Teachers leave quickly...RUN, don't walk.
