    teachers cannot attract children they have some plans and restriction that don't make sense. some of children are so special to them the management pays too much attention to budget spending than anything else they rarely ask us to involve in their program they just have some parents in advance

    Wonderful school with a great staff and a diverse and friendly community of children and parents. Our 4th grader is finding her confidence with math and language arts with the support of a super teacher. The cultural diversity is heart warming.

    Great staff. Diverse student body. Our second grader has gained reading/writing and math skills that I didn't have until 4th/5th grade. Williams makes learning fun.
