    Not a very happy school. Teachers have a bullying attitude. Motto is I don't care if you pass or fail. I will see you next year in MY class!!

    The Resource Dept is the best. If your child has a communication disorder the Resource Dept. really helps them. On the other hand the kindergarten teachers are not compassionate and love to suspend kindergardeners for petty things and laugh about it later. A few good teachers there most are very unfriendly and snotty acting. They love to push getting your kids medicated. They do not foster originality. Minorities and not welcome here.
