    This is the worst school to put your children in. The teachers are rude my children come home crying beacuse of how rudes the teachers are. The discipline certian children and others they do not. My kids have come home with hand prints on them and bruises from kids hitting and punching them. Really are children are suppose to be safe in the schools not scared to go to school. When the kids tell the teachers whts going on the teachers tell them to walk away and ignore and do nothing the the child that started the issue. DO NOT PUT YOUR CHILDREN IN THIS SCHOOL!!

    The principle cares about the children. She has an open school policy parents are always welcome. My daughters love this school. The staff is working hard to bring test scores up. They reward the children for their had work. The only problem I see is that parents are not as involved as they should be. They are not showing up for awards programs field trips Mothers Day Tea etc... If the parents were as involved as the staff is this school would have a much higher rating!

    This school is very clean and a healthy environment for the children. There is a zero tolerance for bullies and negative behavior. The really cares about the students.

    This school needs some outside interference. There's far too much violence on the playground between the children and the teachers watch it happen. I am so glad to be moving out of this district. The principal is doing a good job of trying but it's going to take more than her to change it around
