    This school has been through many changes new principal for 2012/2013 termination of several staff positions mainly due to budget cuts they say. Staff was friendly in years gone by but now seem stressed & unfriendly. They say they offer Robotics but kids say no at least not yet! Renovations promised since 2007 not yet started. And please don't park in front of the school because the meter maid is ticket happy!

    very nice welcoming school most hispanics but they all recieve you with a nice smile. The principal is a very young gentleman with good faith in his school.
