I was highly unsatisfied with the school. A large portion of the way they operate is highly unorganized. They have too many kids in each class, 27 in some of the lower grades even, and have no solution for any of it. The VP was walking around campus for weeks and conducted herself in such a manner ...  Read more

My child attended last year and we had an awesome year. His teacher truly cared about him and the other students in the class. Small classes, 15 to 1.

I know this school year has just started, but so far my son's Kindergarten teacher is wonderful. He comes home every day very happy and tells me about all the things that were taught for the day.

Parking is horrible- truly a nightmare. The teachers my twins had said the Gifted and Talented Program was a waste and i couldn't ever go to any events because we never received fliers or announcements. my opinion, shut this school down

My children loved there teachers we had problems with some issues with some of the students(bullying)but felt it was dealt with approp. I agree they do need more supervision while out of recess. The principal made sure that things got taken care of and kept us up to date on any issues.

This has been the worse school so far. Last year was the first year opened it didn't have books for kids in class or library. This year we are dealing with bullying on a daily basis and school does nothing about it. Teacher never return emails I DISLIKE this school
