We moved here last year. I have a third and fifth grader. This school is so old. The play ground equipment is old, the inside looks and smells old. The cafeteria is also the gym. There is no art class. The kids in this area aren’t that well behaved. My kids haven’t done one school project so far this year, not even a 100 days of school celebration like most schools do. They just seem very out of touch and apathetic here. My fifth grader has struggled with finding friends because the kids here just really aren’t that friendly. I think the teachers are nice and effective in their teaching. Otherwise, this is the 3rd elementary school my kids have been to, and seems to be the most dull. I haven’t seen much in the way of creativity, and the fifth grade teachers act like their schedule of moving the class to a different teacher for different subjects is something new. It may be fairly new to them but schools worldwide have been doing that in fifth grade, in fact they did it when I was in fifth grade 15yrs ago. No school is perfect, but this one definitely needs some upgrades.

New principal, her name is Mrs. Bahl. The old principal Jana Mason, went to Roosevelt Elementary and took all the good teachers with her. My daughter, in 5th grade, says the new principal is not that "kid friendly". This school has gone through about 3 principals since my first daughter began school in kindergarten here.

Mrs. Mason and all of the teachers that work here are amazing!! The school is clean and I have found that my kids are happy to attend school each day:)
