  • How can a school that was doing fairly well a couple of years ago fall to this level...someone at that school is not doing their job...I would start questioning the person in charge of the school as to why the students can't pass basic reading and math tests

  • There is nothing wrong with the school and the teachers are great...however, The principal Ms. Taylor has an attitude that screams "Do it my way or hit the highway" she is a tyrant and seems to keep the PTO under her thumb..if you can, beg to have your child(ren) enrolled in a different school in the district

  • The School is great but Ms. Taylor acts like a dictator. If you have kids that will be attending there beware of her and the PTO's antics.
