    This school is a very good school with caring teachers and excellent principles; however there is so much distraction within the classrooms with unrespectful students and daily "drama". Something really needs to be done so that students that are eager to learn can do so without all the distractions. My child's school year has been a very good year. She just tells me about all the daily drama and I just shake my head.

    This school is under new leadership and has been a great surprise for the last 2 years. The school had a bad reputation but we went to the new student orientation to get a feel for the administration and teachers. After meeting with teachers and administration we decided to give the school a chance. There is great administrative support and teachers caring about the students. I appreciate the job the principle has done at this school!! Overall the school has been a delightful experience for student and parent.

    Be careful when you review these ratings because you and our child's experience may be different. I was afarid for my daughter to go to this school last year but we had a wonderful year. I heard horror stories abou thte other students and principal but never had probelems with either one. So my advice is to visit the school yourself and judge it of of your experience.

    This school needs to work on principal-teacher communication. There is also no support coming from administration for the teachers and their everyday problems or concerns in the classroom.
