We are finally leaving this school and moving on to better and greater things. My oldest went all the way to 4th grade at this school and she had three different principals which was a downfall to everyone, in my opinion. The teachers lack communication. The teachers attendance was worse than the children. The parent-involvement group was a joke and had favorite moms. Lacking motivation. A few good teachers. Not much fundraising for the children. If you are a parent who is on top of their children and have a hard working-focused child then you will do great. Discipline is a joke! Counselor has horrible people skills and took 8 months to get paperwork processed. Librarian is great!!
