    The principal is new so hard to say how she will do. The previous principal was great. In general early childhood programs are great. The Pre-k and kindergarten teachers are great. For a neighborhood school they have a music program which my children have enjoyed. However as the children progressed to higher grade levels they were not as challenged and began to feel more bored. They did not have many programs in place for the more accelerated chidlren.
