Overall this is a very positive place with some truly dedicated teachers--unfortunately, a few bad apples can spoil the bunch. There is a distinct "clique" mentality at this school, which is unfortunate as it is passed down to the students. While there is much emphasis placed on the anti-bully policy in place, the staff (including guidance counselor and principal) rarely follow through--it makes for victims of bullying to feel powerless. That's the negative. On the positive side, there are some true gems of teachers at this school, who truly dedicate their time and efforts with their students--they should be commended for the great job they are doing. Parental involvement is welcome at the school, but not much is done by the PTO to embrace ALL parents...again, it is a clique mentality and the meetings are held immediately after school which rules out working parents from attending and participating.
This school is great! I always feel welcome when I come to volunteer in my daughter's class. High standards are used by most teachers in my experience. The principal is awesome and is always accommodating. You feel like a true partner in your child's education.
Curriculum seems very disorganized and inconsistent. Basic skills are overlooked. The teachers are very caring, but don't seem to have much support from the principal. Supplementing from home is essential.
