Alpac has been a nightmare for our child. We have tried to foster a relationship with the staff, but have been consistently disappointed. Our child was forced to suffer at the hands of dangerous and disruptive students in the classroom...with nothing more than a "time out" in the Principal's office for the offending students. There were multiple occasions that reporting to the authorities was called for...and not ONE member of the staff followed through with reporting the situation. The new Principal is nice, but carries no authority or influence. Teachers are not supported by the administration, in house or from the district. Multiple safety hazards, real and potential, were brought to the attention of the staff with minimal response. The kindergarten class went on ONE local, two hour field trip, never had a music program, and essentially was ignored in the whole of the school agenda. Regardless of the "improved scores" of late, this school is sorely lacking.

This school is great! I love the Walk-to-Math, Walk-to-Read programs! They test each student and place each one in a reading and math class based on their level. Love this! It's not all generic. I have two boys that go to this school and both are in the top classes! The teachers are great. Hope it stays this way with the new principle.

NNo lunchroom, kids eat breakfast outside before the teacher lets them in, teachers send homework home but don't check it, front office lady is clueless and rude. My husband volunteered to help in class and said teacher was very lazy and just handed paper after paper for the kids to work on but didn't check it.

This school is horrible!! I switched my kids as soon as I could, the special needs of my daughter where pushed to the side because they didnt wanna do it, now she has an IEP and is doing great! They dont give the kids a normal social hour for lunch they make them eat within 15 min in the classroom, as well as breakfast they must eat within 5 to 10 min before school starts and do it in the classroom as well there is no lunchroom in this school!!! The teachers are un-prepared and totally chaotic. The staff in the office is unfriendly and the principal seems clueless and oblivious to life in general!! Would not recomend this school to my worst enemy!!

Alpac is a great school! We struggled at another school in the district to have our son's special needs met with no avail. Alpac actually came to us first within a few weeks of our son's attendance. He now has an IEP in place and is doing wonderfully. The music, library and P.E. programs are top notch. The teachers are caring and involved. The PTA is getting much stronger.

The extra attention my son has gotten in order to catch him up with the other children his age has been nothing but excellent. Most of the teachers truely have your childs best interests at heart. I do agree the lack of socialization during lunch is a problem and have experienced the problems it causes first hand. I do believe that children should be able to be social during lunch and recess. Beyond that the activities and learning are far better then most schools I have seen offer. I would recommend this school for your childs learning.

This school is the best I've seen. The teachers are top notch. The principal is awesome. I've noticed she knows most of the kids by first name. The programs available are awesome. The parent involvement isn't the greatest. The meals served are beautiful and nutritious. The extra programs (library, music & gym) are great programs! I'm so HAPPY to be a part of this school!

The school and teachers seem to be over strict, with no lunch room socialization during lunch, a normal break in the day, the children are forced to be extremely quite and do no talking during this time. Focus on Math skills is put on back burners for students in grades lower than 3rd, so a big shock is laid out for students that do not do well in Math when they enter 3rd grade. And there is so much wasted time during class, with breakfast being served, not before school starts at 8:30am but just as school starts giving students time to eat during the beginning of class, wasting the time of other students ready to learn at 9am. The school has some quality teachers, but time is not used to provide an optimal learning experience.
