    a review posted on 2.28.13 was remove because it wrote the truth about the current leadership does not accept suggestions from parents. the previous leaders prior 2013 was the greatest of all she was stern and most of all she was able to maintain the friendship with all parents / students. She was everyone's Mom / Grandmother. students who are now in the in college senior/ juniors etc.. will attest she was the greatest school leader .. I truly wish she would come back ...

    This school is in great hands Mrs Mayer is one of the few people in public service I can truly call committed to the welfare of the students. She is very knowledgeable about how a school should be run and has a great vice principal in Dr. Harris. I have a 2nd and a fourth grader who are very happy with all of the changes the new leadership in this school has introduced. I wish voters can hold our politicians more accountable for not giving our schools more funds in order for a principal like Mrs Mayer and her staff can thrive. This school is on an upward trajectory the energy this principal brings is one I am very supportive of and will like to see her style replicated district wide.

    Love this school. The office staff principal and teachers have all been wonderful. I have been fortunate enough to spend many hours volunteering in the classroom and have experienced teachers on a professional and personal level. There is a true sense of community felt when you attend all of the well-planned fundraising events.

    This is a great school. I would strongly recommend it to anybody and Ms. Benner and Mr. Axman are extraordinary teachers. The principle is great and the staff is amazing. I cannot express enough what a great school this has been for my child. has soared academically. They treat my child and us (the parents) like family.

    While my son is a student in this school i have taken an intrest in following how this school has been improving its standard in always every way for the last 4 years. The API always inched higher and higher each year and i am very pleased to find that it has manged to reach its target API score of 800 this year. The teachers and the administrative staff of this school are very knowlegable and seem to know excatly how to deal with various situations that have been placed before them. i would however appreciate it if the school would do more to enroll more parent participation in their PTA meetings and educate the parents that their involvement with their childrens school is very essential in not only making their kids be better students academically but also makes the school standout in providing more opportunities to the community as a whole.
