My children attended for about 3 years off and on; the teachers need to work on their attitude and tactics concerning the children. Parents need to be careful
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 22, 2006

my daughter has been attending there for 3 yrs. there're bunch of activities she can join. good opportunity for talented & gifted students. just built a student council organization this year. PTA seems active. teachers have good teaching methods. principal is quite active but not a smiley person. building is newly remodelled. nice location.

Parent Involvment seemed low, however test scores seemed acceptable. Teacher involvement with the students and their concern for the students dissapointed me.

My child has attended this school for 2 years and she had one of the best teachers there are. The principal needs to work on her attitude towards the parents of other races but overall it is a great school.

I attended this school during its first two years and am very glad to see that it's doing well. It's a wonderful school and I hope it continues to be.
