  • my son is new this year 2011 in the first grade he is liking it so far the schools is very well organized and he is doing well. I love the pick up on how they do it, don't like the no parking if the school had a parking lot or a different way to get the kids on and off the buses or have the walker and car pickers somewhere with out buses it would be better or maybe have it at a different time have the buses leave 15 minutes before the cars or verse vs it be better but over all really good school so far it would be good to have the teachers start at the first car and say who your child get the child and than there wont be do much people in the street the you can have 10 kids all at once and be off easy peasy

  • I have 3 Children attending this school. 2 girls 1 boy to be exact. My son has been suspended twice for reasons that still uncleared to my wife and I. I personally think my son is being targeted. Last Friday my son came home and told me his jaw was in pain do to another kid that struck him on the face. He proceeded to let staff know about the situation including the vice principal. My wife & I DID NOT receive any calls from the school regarding this incident. The point of this is that if my boy would of struck another kid, my wife and I would of received calls and suspension would of been implemented. Photos were taken of my sons face on that Friday. I will escalate this situation to the board of education to see if we can have our son removed from this school .
