    I know the test sqores are not that high as we would like however I am very impressed with most of my child's teachers dedication. Also the guidance counseklar and the assistant principal helped us with the bulling issue my son had. The principal makes alot of efforts to improve the pride in the school.

    The Principal is a great person very dynamic that really cares for the students. He treats them with great respect. Students are of many different backgrounds some are more challenging than others.It seems to me that a good amount of kids don't really care much about their education.My son does great here If you want to learn you can. The teachers are great and there is plenty of extra help for those who need it or want it. the music program is outstanding. the district is very diverse but not all parents are involved. You always see the same faces everywhere.
