My child loves the school. The teachers are friendly and involved. The principle is aware of every aspect of the schools operation. The only thing I see that needs improving is the pick up proceedures in the afternoon. Security is excellent. I just wish they offered a Pre-k program for non Spanish or just learning speaking children .

Lacking in the most basic of procedures & organization. Encountered several serious issues regarding lack of communication & implementation of procedures regarding children's welfare & safety. Although I have had more than several meetings with them about ways to improve such procedures I have yet to see any improvements. Some mistakes are inevitable & thus not always preventable however in the case this school they are aware improvements need to be but lack organization & motivation to enact such changes. The teachers I must say are friendly & open to communication but unfortunately without results & follow-through it means decidedly less.
