Both my children attend this school. I have an upcoming 4th grader and upcoming 2nd grader. I have never had a problem with this school. The teachers are awesome and love my kids. Im not sure why the ratings are so low. Dr Cohens has always been nice & friendly as well as the teachers and other staff. My kids enjoy attending this school.

I can't believe this is still happening. I taught there in 2000! I felt like I was teaching in 1950. The Principal has little understanding of appropriate child development and teaching. I honestly cannot believe she has lasted this long. She treats staff unfairly and unprofessionally. At lunch time, students were expected to have silent lunches. I am not sure if this is still happening. How can you expect children to succeed when they have no ability to appropriately express themselves or socialize? Collaboration and communication were completely undervalued. How does this prepare children for the new millennium? I could write a novel on the issues regarding this school.

Teachers are great and always have a smile. The principal discipline and runs the school likes is 1960. She doesnt allow the students to be expose with nature or life lessons. The teachers are always walking on egg shells there due to her management. The year my student attend, I've never seen the principal being welcoming to the parents.
