I have nothing good to say about this school. Overcrowded. Culturally inept. If you don't fit in among the majority, you will be ostracized and easily become the scapegoat.

My son has been going to this school for three years. I don't feel that he is receiving the proper education. I went to the first parent teacher conference last week and I felt as though I was being tolerated. I felt like the teachers didn't even want to be there. I am doing my best to get my child out ...  Read more

If there was a rating for less than 1, I would give it to this school. Every day since he started school there last week, my son has been bullied. He is cussed at, hit, and called names constantly. He tells his teachers and all that happens is the kids get "talked to." If you can avoid this school, ...  Read more

My son's preschool teachers have created a wonderful learning environment for their students. I could not be happier with their efforts.

All on a half day schedule in Kindergarten. ...  Read more

My daughter had to start school here mid-year and found that the spanish community kids have banned together and bully the non-spanish speaking students. When she brought the bullying to the teacher as we recommended, the spanish speaking teacher didn't do anything, not even pull the student aside and ...  Read more

I would not recommend this school to anyone! If you live in the area of this school it is worth the drive to take your child elsewhere. Most of the teaching staff is incompetent in adjusting to the needs of the children in their class, the Gifted and Talented Program is non-existent at this school, ...  Read more

I would not recommend this school to anyone. My son is in 4th grade and has attended this school since 1st grade. Two of the 4 teachers he's had were pretty good, the other two completely just didn't get it. There is absolutely no individualized teaching/learning at this school except for Special Ed ...  Read more

I am very happy with this school. My daughter is in third grade and loves it. All of the teachers are involved and the principal is great and always present. We have a 14 yr old son and have had several horrible experiences with other DPS.
