I am the parent of a rising Kindergardener and this is our base school. The school administration's lack of responsiveness and unfriendly attitude makes me run the other direction. As any new parent I wanted to learn more about the school. First I emailed the principal and requested to talk with her about the school. No answer after several attempts. The staff are not knowledgeable and do not know the answer to many a typical qeustions like observing touring parent orientation etc.This school does not allow for guided tours during instructional time! There is a SELF GUIDED tour on Tuesday afternoon after school hours but that does not allow to get good sense of the school climate kids attitude interatction between kids teachers atmosphere in class etc. When I raised some concerns about this with a staff member she just simply hung up the phone. I called back another staff member clarified to me that these are school policies put in place by the prinicpal for privacy issues end of discussion. It does not seem that our son would be happy here.
