The test scores are improving and some of the teachers are good but this school suffers from a fundamental problem with the attitudes of the staff and as a result several of our peers moved their kids to the local charter school. I noticed one parent on here mentioned the librarian. True the librarian is condescending and rude towards the students and creates an unpleasant atmosphere to the point where students get intimidated. You speak to the principal but nothing changes. Other teachers seem to have a chip on their shoulders and aren't friendly with parents so parents don't get involved. I feel with a change of attitude this school has the potential to be so much better than what it is. I feel you must stay on top of your kid and watch attitudes from the staff at this school because they impact the self-esteem of your child. Choose wisely and pay careful attention.
