    From a Parent I am unsatisfied with their disciplinary action against students who repeatedly harass and bully other students. If the student has already been suspended then obviously if the behavior continues he or she should be expelled. The Principal is NOT doing her job. Please get it together. Thank you From An unsatisfied parent

    I feel the principal at the school is on top of it all! She is so friendly and just knows each child and family personally. I am happy with all the teachers and feel my kids are happy and doing well with the learning.

    My children have gone to this school for 2 years now and get very good grades. So I have no real problem with the academic aspect of this school. What I DO have issues with is the lack of serious disciplinary action taken against children who are actually fighting or hitting other kids - NOT OKAY! stuhstudentsNOooOOKAY!

    I am new to the school. For the most part when it comes to education the is a lack of feedback from the teachers. The principle for the most part will not acknowledge you unless their is a certain concern with your child. Unfortunately it appears to be a unfriendly environment. Where's the PTO/PTA? It really stinks to own a nice home in such a crappy school area.

    Most of the teacher here do care. [My] daughter's teacher is very caring and has been extremly helpful. The principal is busy but if you make an apointment to see her she is more than willing to help you out. This school works hard. The only aspect I am bothered by is the students lack of recess time.

    I really like this school my daughter transferred in from one of the 'best' schools in Fairfield. And in the 1 year she has been there she is more happy confidnent and her self esteem has blossomed. She has great friends teachers and parents. We are so happy with how far it has in the past couple years that we are transferring my husbands daughters there to.

    This school is horrible! The teachers don't care and the principal won't bother to help you.
