  • My daughter went to this school in the 1st grade. The children were out of control. The lunch room felt as if they were in prison. Not a good experience. Parents must be involved. Great teachers though!

  • i went to this school as a child,it was some of my better memories. Though I got in trouble a lot, I got along with everyone. I bet if u asked some of the staff there some of them would look back and remember the days of me in there classroom. Others would see me sitting at there desk kicking my feet nervously. I remember having fun all the time and learning a lot doing it. Rough times,in the neighborhood at school we all forgot the hell, at home. In 1st grade my little brother died I was 7 at the time and my teacher Miss. Beachum "not sure if this is proper spelling" came to see me and him at the hospital, and she brought letters from all my class mates wishing him well..they didn't understand that he was never going to. This school helped me in many more ways than just getting my education... it helped me see that there is hope in the world.
