My son spent preschool through 5th grade at this school. They do their best and overall the staff does a decent job. They need to get better about scheduling. You wouldn't find out about days off until the last minute. It was hit and miss with the teachers. My son had a couple good ones, a great one, an unbelievably awful one and a few that were mediocre at best. He did learn a lot. One major issue is communication. In 6 grades and 9 teachers only 3 really were open to communication and I am one to use email and visits to help with the process. Many times I would reach out with minimal to no response.

This school picks and chooses the students it cares to like. My son was in 4th grade here and it seemed as though the only 2 fourth grade teachers were teaming up on him. Picking and choosing students (someone else I knew had the same problem also) The one teacher rambled to me on the phone, she became loud when I seemed puzzled because my son is a good boy. I told her we could have a meeting to see what this was really about. Here she was overreacting and her only possible complaint to the principle was my son was too quiet. Yes too quiet. Grades were great. She threw accreditations in my face and became more irritated when there was no reasoning behind her behavior. I pulled my son from the school. Be careful if your child is in the 4th grade here and pay attention if they become upset.

My daughter is in this school since we moved to Scranton. So far, I have a positive feeling about this school. Based on what I see, the teachers are great and always pay attention to the improvement of their students. The important thing is, my daughter is always excited about going to school.
