Very bad school. Its a bad school because the teachers have lack of respect and the school can't afford better school equipment, also the lunches are 1-10 they don't give enough lunches and there lunches sometimes have hair on then. The lunch ladies DO NOT wear hair nets and gloves which is really disgusting. The school is very over crowded. I do not like how every year they try to change rules and they change principals. The students there have lack of respect. Lastly, the school/Teachers has lack of teaching. The teachers always scream at the children and treat them like trash.

They have so many programs to help the children and have International Party and Thanksgiving celebrations at the school and get parents involved. They have a coffee hour for parents every Thursday to come in and get involved and in the know of what's going on. They build self confidence and also incorporate Spanish as a bi-lingual school.
