  • I have been in the school on many occasions and have never seen kids acting disrepectful or disruptive! Sure you get those few that are.Let me remind people that discipline and manners are taught in the home! I love the school and staff!

  • My grandchildren unfortunately attend this school. The children are disrespectful and disruptive, and the teachers and administration ignore it all. It is so sad that our tax dollars pay their salaries. How can they ignor children wanting to learn, and allow this to go on daily. I went in and was so offended by the children openly cursing and throwing books...as teachers just talked amonst themselves. Principal said 'we do the best we can'...that is not good enough!
