This school is amazing. I transferred my daughter here and have not been sorry. The principal is amazing and always goes the extra mile. I have never seen a principal work so hard to encourage and be there for every child. Every teacher seems to really care for each child.

So what you have is about 25% of the students want to learn I think that 25% of the students are active schoolastically, 25% don't ...  Read more

The grades K-6 are geared somewhat slower than should be. The school claims to offer advanced teaching but fails to deliver. More importance is placed on lunch, snacks and recess than on actual academics. A great many of the students also experience problems with racism and bullies. The school does ...  Read more
