  • I only give it 3 stars because I was not happy with the Assistant Principal David Rodriguez..Late last year I wanted to change my child's class and he said it would not be a problem well months later nothing was done and he doesnt even remember our conversation. He said most kids want to change so they dont do work. So basically was telling me MY daughter doesnt want to do work. I am totally disappointed with the way I was treated as a parent.

  • I went to the school to see how it was going.So basiclly i was observing the school and it was a very good school. I really do reccomend this school for any transfered students or any new students that want to go. There classes are more a fun way to learn and the children are always smiling and laughing. They actually talk to the teachers like there,their own friends. But in a very pleasent way. This school have good activities also.
