As a parent who does participate, my child and I have had really caring and enriching teachers. I wish that a few of the parents would instill more value on their children, a hand full of students are disrespectful to classmates and teachers. I feel that it is and undue stress and takes away from students who are doing well. Parents need to be involved. Parents should be held asccountable. It is the only way our students will continue positive growth. The staff is doing their part, all parents need to meet them half way, be involved, be accountable and raise the bar at home!

This school is really moving up. Scores are up and the faculty/staff really care. Still needs to have greater parental involvement and support but the school is doing very well on their end of things.

In my opinion this could be a great school only if the teacher were more involed with the childern.I also feel that pta should worry about the test scores instead of the dances they have. Mad mom.

School is improving under new admin, however there still is an atitude from some parents that this is a daycare. Parental involvment is low due in no part to the schools faculty or staff. I do believe this school is turning the corner and just needs some good concerned parents to help out.
