  • This school was better a few years back. Once the new principal took over things changed dramatically. It's disorganized and minimal communication amongst parents and teachers. I've even experienced a day where I came to pick up my son and they didn't know where he was. One person says he should have been in one class while the other said she didn't know he was supposed to be there or somewhere else. I've been trying to get my kids out of this school but the school district makes it almost impossible so my next move is Catholic School!

  • Overall, this is a good school that used to be better. Teachers are good and try to maintain high standards. However, my child reports that learning is often disrupted by miss behaving students so that the those who want to learn make less progress than they could. Homework load is not heavy. The school is clean and student projects are creatively displayed. Very few extracurricular activities. Principal leadership is average.
