This school is not a challenging school. This school is at a much slower pace than other school. I know this from parents that lives outside the school boundaries.

When the new principal came last year, it seemed to be getting on the right track. Everyone were working together as a community. This year, I hear the principal talking to students, teachers, and parents in a scolding manner like an infallible leader of a country in war! The PTA president talks down to most other parents. My son's teacher seems very nice and competent but the school environment is not very welcoming. Just because we are not well off enough to be able to afford to live in an affluent community does not make us uneducated.

You can feel the difference in the school, since the new principal arrived. There is more parental involvement and a general positive feeling in the attitudes of the teachers and staff. It is definitely a more productive environment.

Well the new year has started and I am already impressed. We have a new strong principal and I see nothing but greatness in the future. It takes work to make a diamond from coal but I believe Mrs. Scanlan can put this school on the map!

This school rates poorly for academics, extracurricular activities, and parental involvement. It has lowered the level of academics to accommodate the non-English speaking students. Do not recommend. Glad we are out of there and it is behind us. If this is your home school look elsewhere and either go private or transfer. This school receive a new principal our last year there (2004) and hopefully things have improved, but it has a very long way to go to get to even an acceptable level. They are exempting lots of students from NCLB required testing!!! Beware. Again, my review is based on my years there, 1997 to 2004. They take advantage of the fact that the non-English speaking parents will not 'rock the boat' and do not enjoy any type of parental involvement.
