I like that this school is a small neighborhood school. It makes the atmosphere more children friendly. The teachers and staff really get to know the kids. I have noticed teachers that haven't had my child in their class greet them by name. I also like that it is a bilingual school. The music teacher ...  Read more

Academics: POOR Parents Involvement: 00 Teachers and Staff: NOT SO GOOD. They are there just for the check, not for the kids. The principal and assit principal are not advocate for the children of the school. Roaches: EVERYWHERE! Never consider enrolling your child in this school.

The curriculum for this school is extremely weak. Most teachers that have been working there have been teaching for 20+ years and they continue to have the old fashion philosophy. They are not technology oriented. In my case the teacher was a typical old style teacher who explains things on the board ...  Read more

The classes are small which promotes a better environment for the children to learn. Teachers can focus more on the students in an individual manner. This is an A school and has been for several years. I myself came to this school and I'm proud to say that my daughter is here now.
