Very good faculty for the most part (a couple exceptions). The school has a strong principle who seems to know all the students by name. Excellent school psychologist who is very attentive to student's special needs. Bullying could be addressed a little more, but most of the problem students seem to ...  Read more

I have to disagree with some of the parents comments, we moved here for the school district. I have seen this area grow quite rapidly in the last 10years.

Principal retired this year. VP will take over for 2008/2009 school year. I totally agree that all these teachers teach to the state tests which is very sad indeed. They are not interested in helping establish a feeling of community among the students and families. PTA wants no parent involvement ...  Read more

Academics: teach to state tests. No ability grouping after K/1. 4th and 5th grade math inadequate to Regents' standards- get a tutor b4 middle school. Science is minimal. No subject acceleration or enrichment for academically advanced children; pullouts reserved for those who are (or are falling) behind. ...  Read more

I personally do not like this school.I feel that is very old not only in its looks (except for a 'new wing' that was just added) but also in the materials that are to be used by students in all areas.The teachers have been ok but not the greatest,I feel the kids deserve better.The school really dosent ...  Read more
