This school since day one has been a pain in my rear. Not so much the teachers but the Principal is the worst. She only cares about her numbers and doesn't care so much about the education that the children are getting. If you have a problem you will not get it fixed with her. Every time I have a problem end up at the superintendents office. The counselor is also a really difficult person to deal with as well. If you feel that your kids are not doing well within the first month get them out. Your problems will not get solved with the principal.

This is a very good school. The principal and teachers are very caring and are certified. Most of the parents support the school and have positive things to say about it. Even though many of the students come from disadvantaged backgrounds, there are no gangs. The school's test scores are consistently increasing each year. Of course, like other schools, there are a few parents who are always negative about everything.

This is a miserable excuse for a school. While the teachers are competent and caring, the student body makes this school a dangerous one. It's my opinion the principal is incompetent. My daughter was harmed 3 times in one week, culminating in a student putting her hands around my child's neck. The district safety officer could not guarantee my daughter would not be injured, and it took speaking to the superintendent to get a written action plan and a guarantee for my child's safety.
