    This school is absolutely horrible! No organization at all.......

    This is a pretty good school so far. My children come from an enviroment of a private school. I like this school because the involvement and communication between the parent and teacher is exceptionally well. My children seem to be very happy and are adjusting very well.

    This school was very unorganized. The principal was new to the system each concern I had she seemed to tell me of her expectation of her staff rather than address the concern or propose a solution. The para-professional for my child's class was very elderly and had problems keeping up with the kids and controlling the group. The teacher was nice always seemed willing to work with the parents on improving their child. My main concern is that the children didn't seem to be exposed to as many things as students from other schools. I was not able to attend a lot of the school functions because many events were to be announced until a couple of days prior. Not enough time to make work arrangements. Major concerns with discipline and saftey. I would not advise any one to send their kid to this school. My child will not return.
