    After reading the reviews I wondered if it was the same school. The school has a new principal and many new teachers who do a great job. My child loves it there sings in the choir and her teachers all have impressive technology to use and they do every day. I don't know when it was remodeled but it was and the paint is pretty and the floors shiny.

    I do not like this school at all. the students are unruly and when incidents happen the teachers do not contact the parents. This is my children's first and last year going to this school. This school needs a major over haul.

    My daughter attended this school last year and I was so unhappy with everything the school offered and the techer and the staff all together. She got paid little attention the school was rude to me all the time and the dress code was not enforced until they made her take off her tights when she was wearing a skirt. I told them to not make her change until the contact me and after that everyday they complained about her uniform. DO NOT send your child here.

    I think that if this school was to be remodeled that teachers parents and students will take more pride in the school and help it grow.
