This school is just ok. Grading is horrible! Kind of a boring school, nothing fun or whatsoever. Hoping that they will have a new Principal for the next school year.

Great school, awesome facilities, Mrs Tran is the BEST teacher for 2nd graders! Great Ymca, with Mr Bryan having "Dance party recess" on some Fridays. The kids here seem happy. I volunteer a lot on campus and am always happy with the environment!I wish there was more parent involvement.

I actually really like the principal. She is always willing to listen and knows what good instruction is. The school has a strong focus on decision but is also very friendly. Wish more parents were involved. I think we have a lot of working professionals, but still.
