  • good school, good vice principal i like her, principal i guess don't really know her well. lunch are warm i like it. staff tends to be tougher on smaller kids only when older kids are more messy! what i don't like is many parents seems to have complaints or things they don't like but ,never talk to the right staff to get it fixed. all schools have good and bad things but this one is good ! impossible to make everyone happy! for sure... some staff can be rude and or lazy that i
    agree! they need to give time for parents concerns during parent meetings. thing i don't like kids are not allowed to take any vacation during school year but, teachers do ? why shouldn't all rules apply to everyone in the school?

  • Academicly my son has been doing good. I personaly have seen things I dont agree with. Lunch tables are some of the time dirty by the time kids eat lunch and the bathrooms do need more cleaning during school hours. Some staff have a bad attitude and have very little patients. Several parents complain about the school meetings, very little info is given and parents dont have enough time to say there concerns.

  • In this school I think the vice principal is a little too strick! The principal is nicer and more understanding. I also don't think they tell their teachers anything when they are rude to parents. The school is doing better than most schools in the area, and I like that my daughter goes there. She is doing really well so I guess the teacher are doing okay. The after school program is great for the older kids, but they need more activities for the younger kids. The school is very safe but extremelly small.

  • is a very good school, good teachers, well educated kids, only a few minor things no soap or paper in bathrooms, kids don't usually like lunch food, some parents say they serve a light snack for breakfast not a breakfast, kids order with teacher lunch on a daily basis whoever does not order lunch does not get one regardless of whether they have many left. lunch lady kind of lazy. many parents volunteer 20 hours needed per school year per family, donations are not accepted unless is cash.
    many parents often arrive late to meetings or conferences over 1/2 hour late, not good. school offer several classes for parents.
