Sad, because we wanted our child to go to his local public school, but he went from loving all of his other experiences at 3 other schools to dreading school and being scared and sad every day he went there. The building is depressing inside, especially depending on what classroom you get, with fluorescent lighting and drab paint. He was not allowed to "play on the grass" at recess and had to stick to the concrete. The cafeteria was overwhelming and windowless and not enough time to eat. The activities are unstimulating, such as "coloring in the lines" and watching a video about Picasso. Such a bummer! Now he's in a new school and loves going again. I don't know what can be done about this because they are doing the best they can with the resources, but like another reviewer said, I think the main reason current parents praise the school is because of the *high* level of parent involvement and fundraising they do.
