  • Love the school! I think that the staff, administration and support personnel are all Aces. I have been here for a long time, and have weathered many changes. They do a great job, and I am happy to stay right where we are!

  • The school used to always invite parent's help in the classrooms. Unfortunately, when a few parents step over the line, it ruins it for the rest of us. Teachers have to be allowed to do their job without Parents trying to micromanage every aspect of their child's life.

  • I must agree with the other parents this school,s principal acts like it is a prison, I came to the school to have lunch with my daughter and was denied access because I did'nt make an appointment. I felt this was not appropriate to do due o the fact that this is a public school!!!!!!!!

  • I think the teachers are good and try
    hard, the principal is a poor choice. The
    principal has made the school feel as it were a lockdown compound. you need to
    make an appointment to even see your child at school a day in advance!!!!

  • Excellent school, class rooms are not over crowded and the teachers work hard to make sure all students learn and understand the lessons
