Posted May 23, 2013

my kidz go to this school and i've been very impressed with the quality of service the front office provide. I'm sorry to say about some teachers they lack that professionalism. Also, i find it very distrubing to see how the children get treated during their lunch break. The lunch break attendants/teachers on duty (the majority of them) are very mean and scream at the children when asked to use the restroom. Sad to see not many parents be more involved and see what's going on or have parents help out may be suggestion! But i may say this school is fairly new and is on it's way to improvement. Overall...i love this school!

A teacher pulled me aside to tell me where to enroll my child because of our race. "There is only one in the class." If your child has food allergies, pack a lunch. The catering spr advised my child s account would be flagged lactose intolerant. I did not need a doctor s note. The cashier would see the flag & check the tray. Also, there were 2 choice entrees daily. Not true. I discovered my child did not have a choice (cheese or pepperoni pizza, cheese egg or dry cereal/ stopped serving soy milk). I voiced a concern. Catering spr never called. The principal would look into the matter & make sure I received a call back. Never. Solution: pack lunches. An allergy panel revealed my child was allergic to the class guinea pig (not allergic to any trees or grass). I did not know what caused the difficulty breathing/tightness in chest. The doctor misdiagnosed the asthma until other symptoms appeared- itchy throat/eyes, swelling. I submitted the results to the school, nurse reviewed it.They kept the pet in the class. The teacher never called back.Children should be priority. My child was a straight A student there repeating material learned in a lower grade at another school. Research.

I am very very unsatisified with this school. They are very unprofessional and disorganized. All the teachers I have encountered are very judgemental and unprofessional. I am planning on moving soon to get my kids out of this school. The school is very slow.

My child has graduated from here already. I am a paraprofessional here at the high school level. I love it. Everyday I see the efforts put forth to help our students succeed. Student council members and some other classes have 'adopted soldiers' they send care packages to. Every week at the football game they give a care to the opposing team to send a soldier from yheir area. Our students care because they have good role models. I am also gatekeeper at the games. I see a lot of students counting out their change to watch their fellow students play. That is great school spirit.
