My daughter is in kindergarten and the tranformation was made so easy for her and myself. It is a very community oriented school and community. She comes home everyday so excited about school and that makes me happy as a parent.

The food in this school has been very bad for years. When a problem has persisted for this long, there really needs to be a change in Cafeteria Management. There are some fantastic teachers in this school, and the principal seems to be doing a good job.

This school is very unorganized. The lunches are terrible and not very appetizing. My two children come home starving every day telling me how 'nasty' the lunch was. The teachers are friendly and helpful, and the principal seems to be finding her niche. I think she is going to make a great leader once she establishes herself.

This school is in the middle of major renvoations and is a total mess. The teachers are friendly.I only wish they could have done more of the work on weekends because it is very distrubing to the classes and to visitors to the school. The lunch at this school is terrible and not very filling. My child comes home many a day very hungry.I attended this school when it was both elementary and high school. It is very disappointing to go there now and see all how run down and old it looks, but when the transformation is complete I believe it will be every modern.
