my experience with the staff was very cold not the least bit welcoming except for the parent volunteer who told me about the school and showed me around and gave me the basic info she could remember. my son was horribly bullied by the entire class from drop off til pick up. that was handled immediately by the principal after my complaint. no award ceremonies or extra curricular activities the library is a wreck. my sons teacher is very stuffy and can be down right cold. but theres one in every school hopefully shes the only one. and they write on gigantic lined brown paper. my son hasnt used that since pre-k and kindergarten and his grades have dropped and there is one simple math page once a week for homework. theres nothing wrong with an old small poor school if it has quality staff. good attitudes and energy are free.
