It is absolutely necessary to have a seasoned teacher who can manage the classroom and handle some of the unruly children. The new principal, Mr. Juarez, is very active in the school. He is outside everyday during pick up and he is always seen in the hallways. Read less

At first glance I fell in love with the school. Then once my child started attending, it turned out to be a horrible nightmare. The teachers cause unnecessary drama that ends up effecting home life. The lack of professionalism is mind boggling. They even feel the need to use junkfood to bribe/reward
... Read more kids. They do not keep parents informed. There are no open lines of communication from teachers. They are more concerned about their image and how they are perceived than seeing each child as an individual being with parents who only want the best for their child. When a parent tries to get envolved their wishes are completely ignore. I ended up pulling my child out of that horrible school. Read less
