My twin sister and I graduated the year of 2009. During that time, I was a shy kid who enjoyed getting grades. I was a victim of getting screamed out by the people in charge when they got in a bad temperament. I remember one teacher who had saliva spewing out of his mouth, yelling to me about something ...  Read more

My son graduated from this school in 2011. This school is terrible, educational level is very low, my child didn't learn much. He went to very good middle school totally unprepared, he was way behind other kids and needed to catch up a lot. There is absolutely no communication between parents and teachers. ...  Read more

I have never heard of an elementary school that doesn't have recess. My son is only six and is expected to sit from 8 in the morning until two in the afternoon and they wonder why their test scores are bad.

I am extremely disappointed with this school. First of all the kindergartens are allowed to walk to class by themselves.

First the kids are made to wait out in the yard for their teachers even in the winter. Something I did not do because I'm not making my kids wait half an hour outside in 20 degree weather for a teacher. Second the gym teachers act like they're running a boot camp, threatening to fail kids just because ...  Read more
