My daughter is in third grade now and she has been at this school since kindergarten. It has its good and bad. I noticed that the people there yell a lot. To be honest, I think it's due to an overcrowding issue. There are a lot of kids and the ratio of students to teachers is pretty high. Other than ...  Read more

When my child was at 3rd grade, one day he brought home a math worksheet with an "Excellent" mark upside down. Then I found 5 errors in his sheet that were never identified by the teacher. It happened seveal times and I reached a conclusion that the teacher pretended that she checked students' work. ...  Read more

My daughter has been at this school for two years already and she enjoys a lot!!! I'm glad with the teacher's feedback, everytime she something to say about my daughter she sends a note and she calls me. It happened every time this past year. I was happy with it.

Currently, I have two children in the school. They both have scored 99% on the G+T exam this past year. The teachers so far have been very communicative, attentive and caring. I am also a product of the school and although I don't support the standardized testing at such young ages, I firmly believe ...  Read more

They claimed they are a school with a heart. No, it is the opposite. Principal never listen to parents' concerns and teachers can do whatever they want. This is a school without a heart.

We love this school - nurturing teachers and principal. My son became well rounded, with interests in multiple disciplines, including science, reading, music. As with any other school, you need to do extra work at home, if you want to be above average.

I agree with the other reviewer things have changed. The administration is bad. You are hardly ever able to resolve anything. They tell you how right they are and send you back. some of the teachers are plain lazy. No love for teaching and don't want to work, especially with writing.The parent co-ordinater ...  Read more

My son attended K class. Always crying in the morning, never happy after school. Teacher sit him next to a fan and my son got sick of course. Complaining to a teacher didnt help, raising voice to her did. At one time a teacher scream to my wife telling bad things about our boy. As a father, I must have ...  Read more
