    I was so glad when we moved out of the district so my daughter didn't have to attend school here. It was absolutely horrible. The front office staff are rude the teachers indifferent and my daughter's math and reading ability scores were much lower than they are now. The school is overcrowded and the students suffer as a result. My daughter would constantly come home from school sad and depressed that someone had "picked" on her -in Kindergarten! Very glad to be rid of this school and now somewhere else.
