    I am a former teacher. This school has serious issues regarding discipline and an extremely unsupportive administration. If you can don't place your child there.

    I am a parent of a 4th grader and kindergardener and this school is very unprofessional and disrespectful to their studenst. Refering to the children as 'their peeps'. They have no full time nurse as my child is a diabetic and needs one. They have no care of how parents feel towards their teachings. The do not have any real activities for the kids and they have many real issues when it comes to the teaching Very poor school I DO NOT Recommend this school. My kids will not be returning to tghis school either much to their happiness

    I'm a student at Place and this school has changed so bad. The administration doesn't pay attention to what the kids would like. Place Middle School was so much better. The administration punishes or suspends you for the weirdest things. And the dress code makes many students mad. I mean whats the dress code going to change? We aren't allowed to wear jeans and if we do we are suspended. The girls there always have drama. And the boys are out of control. I don't recommend any middle school child going there.

    I am a parent of a first grader at this school. I am amazed at the lack of organization both in the classroom and in the administration. My son is reading at or slightly above grade level and in a class that is still learning to write their name. I have been completely displeased and am planning to change schools at first opportunity.
