    GREAT SCHOOL. THEIR GOAL IS TO MAKE THEIR STUDENTS #1. I WAS A STUDENT HERE AND NOW MY SONS GO TO SCHOOL HERE. ITS A GREAT PLACE TO BE. YOU ACTUALLY SEE THE PRINCIPAL INVOLVED.

    I am such a proud parent ! My child has not only met most of the academics but also my child gets the emotional support needed when I am unable to be with he while she is in school . Ms. Nunez (Principal ) along with Ms. Montano & Ms Brown Mr. Ramirez & Mr. Barton are all such a spportive staff to all of the children. I have been lucky to have them in my child's life . Placing my child in this school was the best thing I did!

    I read the other review and I could not agree more. My son attends this school and I am trying desperately to get him into another school. The classes are large and this year in 4th grade he didn't learn a thing. Honestly his teacher never graded any of his homework. This school does a disservice to black and latino children.

    My Daughter is only in first grade now and I believe that she is in need of more attention and reinforcement from her teacher. The truth is to this matter is that the school is over-crowded. The school is over-crowded the classes are way too crowded with 28 to 27 students per classes its very hard for students to learn in such an environment. Basically this school should provide a tutor for all of their classes which they don't. As a parent I'm under so much pressure because I want to find the right place for my daughter before it's to late. At home we do the homework but we invest so much time on one subject that is like she have never seen this type of material before in class.
