    This school has excellent experienced caring teachers who know each child is far more than a test score and who routinely go above and beyond the call of duty to help children learn and to help them cope with life's challenges. We respect our students their families and their cultural heritage including their home languages.

    Wonderful staff Wondeful afterschool programs Eys gets my kids involved into sports and keeps them away from the streets. Every one in the office is very nice and helpful.

    Principal is very helpful and care about the kids. He knows the kids he bumped into during recess/lunch and he is there for the kids all the time. His office is open for parents to discuss things at all times. Most of the teachers there are helping the kids to succeed. The Resource Specialist is especially hard working in helping the kids read and there had been many kids not able to recite the alphabet and started reading fluently at a first grade level in two months!
