I love this school! Teachers and administration are very involved with students. The principal send a weekly phone message and email to families. Many great opportunities for students.

This school is a hostile learning environment. Staff yell at their students and at parents. I was yelled at during the pick up process after school and was literally appalled that they would yell at a parent that way.

The principal here is atrocious. On the first day of kindergarten, my daughter and I cheerfully entered the building, saw the principal, introduced ourselves, she just stared, barely acknowledged me, and did not even say hello to my child. There is NO supervision as the buses pull up in the morning. ...  Read more
