  • This school is poor. The school is on probation again, the scores are consistently falling. The women in the office are incredibly unfriendly and the administration seems very unknowledgeable. It's unfortunate that parents in the neighborhood will not send their children to this school and instead opt for charter schools and other schools outside the neighborhood.
