  • i haven't gone to this school yet but from what my friends tell me this school seems awesome but i don't know if the things people wrote about Mrs. Rappa are true. She seemed nice when she came around to visit my school Ben Franklin

  • Ms. Rappa is a gem; my husband and I (and daughter) ALL had positive, constructive and FAIR meetings w/her; her open door policy is welcoming and appreciated! In response to homework amounts, simply put, it's overwhelming!

  • Its a good school but I'm going to say the worst part of the school is the (...), I'm not a trouble maker but she can be a little too harsh at times. I know that discipline is important but I just don't like her method. the kids here are mostly over average. There aren't many kids in remedial math or anything. The guidance councilor is very fair but sometimes takes a lot of persuasion. There are quite a few after school activities. There are around 20. homework wise I think is fair, we always have at least one homework assignment or project a day. Over all, it is a good school.
