Teachers go above and beyond, putting in countless hours of overtime for after-school clubs, tutoring, events, and planning. You can tell this school is a community that cares deeply for their students and will do anything to help them! New principal and counselor are amazing!
The majority of staff at this school is very judgemental and unprofessional in regards to communcation. The environment between teachers is not very collaborative when on the surface it appears to be collaborative. The progress report grading system for this school district is on a scale from 1-4 which means absolutely nothing to the parents. If I was a parent, I would strongly recommend not sending your child to this school. They do provide after school clubs on Mondays, but not every child is able to join a club due to limited spaces. The cafeteria food is great and healthy. Some teachers do not go above and beyond to provide what is best for their students. The principal appears to be genuinely concerned for your child, but in reality, will provide minimum support possible.
The teachers at this school work very hard with little support from the administration. The teachers care about all the students. There needs to be more communication between admnistration, staff, and parents.
My daughter has gone there since kinder, she is now going to 2nd grade. I think the teacher and staff has ALWAYS been supportive and ALWAYS addressed ANY little or small problems that I had concerns with.
