This school could be much better. Yes it is a large school with many students in each classroom. With that being said, according to my child there is little in classroom management skills.

I'm just starting to know the school. My son is in Kindergarden. So far so good.

While one of the better schools in the public system, the leadership holds this school back. The Principal has a reputation for being abrupt and rude to teachers, students, and even volunteers. While I was skeptical at first this reputation was proven true after I spent more time at the school.

Overall I have been pleased with this school. My only complaint is that for the past two years my son has been pulled from one class and moved to another due to too many kids in one class. I would rather him stay where he was initially put. I absolutely loved Mrs. Boyd. She is the best Kindergarten teacher ...  Read more
