  • The teachers are WONDERFUL! It's the principal..she is holding the teachers back. There is little parent involvement in this school,because the principal won't have the kids put on plays, there are no family events, there is a PTA but there are no meetings..and the 1 or 2 there were, they were right at 5 pm so nobody could get there in time. It would be a great school under different leadership.
