    I agree with the other reviews. The schools administration is very very unorganized and the lack of communication between staff. My son finished kindergarden and will not return next year. I agree the that P.T and O.T. therapist were very good and my son's teacher Mr. G was very discplined the rest of the school deserves to burn down!!!!!!

    The school is unorganized. If it weren't for the teachers i don't know where my son would be.

    Terrible school. The school is over crowded and the administrative staff lacks communication skills. School generally seems unorganized daily.

    The school is great. It meets with my approval. I am most thankful for his 2nd grade special ed teacher Ms. Angela Papetti who is committed to the well-being of each student. She is great with the children and deserves recognition. Thanks to her my grandson has made great progress. It is a team effort among all of the staff but because of her he has really done well. All in all the school is just simply great.

    There is one perfect kindergarten teacherin that school(Mrs. Crowley) but the rest of the teachers in that school could take lessons from her on how to treat children and how to teach children. The principal of the school has a very nasty attitude and she does not know how to speak to parents or her staff. This school is in need of improvementnot only academically but also socially.

    This school is great. They are strict. They watch and are concerned about their students. They take time with your children's learning. The teachers principal and social workers are beautiful. The special ed classes as well as general ed is great.
