    i think the school's uniform policy is excllent and the teacher's are very thaughtfull and nice also.

    This school has been very poorly ran the past few years. No communication with parents. There are some great teachers and some not so great but for the most part the teachers are ok. There is now a new principal so hopefully things will get better. He seems to interact more with parents.

    This school has it's ups and downs. Head lice is a continual problem. The staff seem to be very nice and helpful. Many seasonal students come and go and that makes it difficult for teachers. PTO is growing and changes are happening.

    I believe this school need to be reviewed and thigs need to change the teachers are okay but there is a great lack of communication on all staff with parents and students
