  • Fantastic Music Program. No charter school can match what this school offers in the arts

  • The teachers and staff are cold and just plain don't care. It is very sad. A lot of the children are rude and disrespectful to authority. If you have the choice, avoid any K-8 school. The things my younger children come home repeating is flooring. They are subjected to things they shouldn't hear or see at their age. The children above grade 5 are not aloud to play on a playground and only have 15 minutes of outside time daily. The high turn over speaks for itself. The teachers themselves don't even want to work there, and, the ones that do; it is only because they can't get hired anywhere else. I think if there were more options (i.e. private or charter schools) in the area it might make this school and it's staff work a little harder.
