This is the best school my son has ever been to. The administration is super friendly and knows my son and I by sight, always greets me by name. There is one rude person in front office but she is the exception not the norm. The teachers are great and have brought my son from remedial reading to grade level in just a few short months.

The teachers seem to be ok.. however.. if your child is in counseling do not expect anyone to tell you. Also... if you expect nice and friendly people in the front for the most part this is true...unless you have the JOY of running into one particular person and if you have been in the office more than once you get the hint on who this is. She is rude, will ignore you for long amounts of time because apparently she cant be bothered with 'your' problem and you are making her WALK oh NO! To put a person in a position to deal with people skills when they have none is beyond me.

The only complaint I might have is that the first day or two of school was a nightmare. But the actual classroom activity seems to be appropriate and interesting for the kids. Good school overall though.
