My child attended this school after I had heard it was a 'better' choice. This is not at all true. While her teacher was amazing, and even took the extra effort to tutor her before school, the overall feel of the school is that the staff thinks the 'pretty' new building makes the school great. The office staff lacks an ability to work with people let alone children. The playground staff would rather chit chat than have to deal with the issues the children have on the playground. My daughter having had one of the good teachers did alright, although she was never really happy at this school.
I felt the school was only there to boost their wasls scores. They spent 150 minutes on L.A/reading and 90 minutes on math per day. That left absolutely nothing else for the children. No art, no art, short recess, short lunch, very little science, social studies, if any. I was very displeased with the school. The PTA was chaos, I never received my PTA card that I paid for 4 family members. They could never tell me when the meetings were, there was no parental circle of help. They used every parent possible to do classes they should have teachers for! No field trips. Traveling to over 6 states and schools, this was by far the worst school our children have attended.
My son attended kindergarten at this school. He only attended for a short period but his teacher was very nice but I think that she wasnt very tactful when it came to discpline of the children. I volunteered a few times as a parent helper in the classroom and the kids appeared to run all over her. I felt she was to timid when she demanded attention from them. She didnt have a teachers aid there in her class, she depended on help from other nearby kindergarten teachers whenever she felt overwhelmed. Overall, this school is basically new, built in the 90's, so it was very clean and well kept. I feel that the parking area and student pick up area needs to be adjusted better. It is too crowded with limited driving or parking space to pick up your child.
