    Bullying bullying bullying!!! Stay away from this school and the entire district if you could. I reported a severe case of bullying against a special needs child and the school administration nor the supeintendents did anything to protect the child. Observed children screaming at teachers and students calling other students names and teacher just looked the other way. Save your child therapy and go somewhere else. It could not be worse than here.

    There are quality teachers at the school but the administration changes too often. The school needs consistent strong leadership. The children are in charge.

    I dont think that the teachers or the principal is currently paying close attention to student absences or grade average. I have a 4th grader in this school and he's been abesent and it was not noted on his report card. He was failing a class and I was not notified that he was having any time of trouble in the subject.
