Was very shocked at the behavior of the staff and principle of this school. I pulled my child out and I'm considering private school. This is a school that lacks academic excellence.

My child attended this school and had the worse experience. My childs teacher name was Mrs. Fisher and she was the most rude disrespectful teacher I have ever met. She doesn't teach the kids and she was off more then she was at school. Parents beware if you care about your children reconsider!!!!!1

I was a teacher at this school, and it was one of the best years of my career. I truly connected with the students and the staff at this school and I believe that the students best interests are really at heart.

It used to be terrible...some of the teachers were manipulative, ...  Read more

Kindergarden teachers are awesome. Fifth grade teachers active in extracurricular activities (science olympiad, scienc camp). Excellent PTA support provides for materials and field trips for most grades.

School leadership is lacking. Parent involvment seems to be suppressed. Concerns brought to the attention of the vice principal,principal, and/or teachers (not all), are met with threats instead of leadership style solutions. If I could afford to take my child out and send him/her to private school I ...  Read more

My childs kindergarden class has 35 students to one teacher. This is quite larger than the listed 19/1 ratio. This sight also shows zero percentage of mixed race children. There are quite a few mixed race children in the school. I have mixed feelings about the school. I hope to get a better picture when ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.
