The teachers and school is excellent. Parent involvement would make a world of a difference. I am involved in what my childs does at school and out of school. Its sad to be at the school with the different activities and have to hug a student thats not mine because they are crying wishing there parents were there. Alot of parents can't be as involved as they would like, but alot of parents can and dont.

This school has not met State academic standards for more than 3 years. Under the current female principal, there is no discipline. Without strong discipline at the top, teachers may as well be talking to the walls. It shows.
