    well a couple of years back i used to go to this school and it was not one of the best schools you can ever imagine. the staff are kind of weird and stuff the teachers aren't really helpful and the school food is terrible also the students over there are very unkind and disrespectful so i recommend your child not to go to this school trust me.

    People who live in the neighborrhood do not want to send their children there anymore. Over-crowded many transient familes from Pleasantdale Road low to no parent involvement. Too many ESOL children.

    Very supportive staff and good teachers. ( Lagiglia-johnson l - klaft - sandford - harris - etc ). But parents need to be more involved. Recomended !

    GREAT Kindergarten teacher & paraprofessional. Principal and school staff are all very friendly and want to ensure the parents are comfortable with the school.

    Awesome school! Amazing teachers who are very friendly and who genuinely care. Yes there is a slight language barrier but that is mostly among the parents. Besides that all of the kids are extremely well behaved and the education recieved is top notch - which is what is most important. I have seen my child's learning ability move at an extremely rapid rate. Highly recommended!

    This school administration and teachers are very supportive! The unfortunate thing there is a high population of other nationalities attending this school so there is little or if any parental involvement due to the language barrier. Most of the students who attend are from the surrounding apartment complexes so you see a high turnover rate of children leaving and coming. The PTA members are not active or visible. My hands go off to the staff and teachers who a lot of times go beyond the call of duty.
