Good school. Improved alot since principal Deborah Holcomb came on board. The bully situation was out of control before she came. She cares and she does a good job.

The teachers and staff don't take the time to listen to parents concern's.They blow you off like no big deal.From what I see the PTA does more work than the staff.I'm concerned about my child's safety.
