    I love this school so much everything is perfect about it. I wish I could go back to elementary this school has helped me out a lot. I left in my 5th grade year to another school because I moved and I really wish I would have stayed I miss everything about it. Everyone is so friendly; the teachers are super sweet and they actually care about the child's education. I would recommend this school to everyone.

    I think this is a very good school the teachers are all very nice and willing to help the kids. Student classes are based on each kid level. Previous principal was not Ok since I never saw him for 3 years; the new principal Ms. Villanueva on the contrary is always present in ALL student activities and classes.

    The school staff are extremely rude. If you request a parent conference don't waste your time waiting because they will never make it happend. The principal talks over the teachers. I had a very bad experience with this school. The worst staff I've ever seen.

    The students in first and second grade are not getting any physical education at all. The advanced level for first grade is far from advanced. The homework isn't challenging at all for them and it is always the same.

    I think this school is very good especially one of my recent teachrs Ms.T. Rodriguez has taught us student how to learn and have fun in reading.I also like the activities they give the children and the gifts they earn for reading and getting so many points. These pass 6 years that I was a student there were very fun with all my teachers like Ms.Pla Ms.Perez Ms.cenal Ms.Elvin and Ms.T Rodriguez.All of their advices they gave us students when we go to middle school really helps the children.It is very good to have D.A.R.E classes in 5th grade they get to know much more better what can drugs cause people to do.
