I would not recommend this school. My child is in second grade and has not had one day of recess. The principle does an extremely poor job of dealing with discipline problems. There is very little parental involvement. Good teachers but very poor learning environment.

Very disappointed by the decision to count music class as meeting the Physical education requirements - limiting the PE available. They also limited the opportunities for recess - My 2nd grader recieved a total of 6 for the school year 2009-2010 Aug to May 1st. Aslo real lack of communication with parents.
