I felt a complete lack of cooperation with the staff of this school particularly with the principal. I had to pull my oldest child out of the school because she wasn't able to accomplish anything in this learning environment. I thought maybe it was a fluke so I enrolled my younger child years later. It became apparent that it wasn't a fluke at all when I also had to pull her out of the school. I should mention that the same principal remains in place to this day. It is my opinion that this school would benefit from new leadership.

Avoid this school if your child is at all ahead of his/her peers. This school is happy to teach to the bottom of the class and to let your child flounder until they fall back to the level of everyone else. Working with the administration is a nightmare - the principal had no idea what the district's published policies even were.
