My kid has been there for 1st/2nd grade & her 1st teacher was remarkable.She still loves to see her in the halls & teacher still cares about my child.she kept me informed all year. Her 2nd grade teacher is another thing I have no clue to the class schedule what they been working on any notes I send I never get a response so I don't know if she even got it. The security at the school is horrible. I have had someone pick up my child who is not on the list & they let him with no id check or anything. anyone can walk into that office or walk around the school & no one questions them. when they buzz you in they tell you to go to the office but they don't make sure you do. field trips are sub par and they could do better & more.she has been to the same museum three times in 2 years there. the are unorganized & unprofessional in the front office.in the mornings they have limited drop off time to 10 minutes before the first bell which is ridiculous. most schools have a 30 minute window so make sure parents get through carpool and students get to class on time. when your child is late you don't have to sign them in just let them out & they will buzz them through with a pass to class.
