    great school ! the new principal just inforced the already established rules and safety codes that were way too laxed in the past. all children attending are much safer because of the enforced rules. the teachers really do their best and the principal genuinely loves her work and the children . we have been at this school with 3 kids 8 years total !!!!

    This school is by far one of the best in the district.

    With new principle this school has gone down the tubes. This school no longer welcomes its parent -teacher relationship to focus on the childs needs. New saftey measures have put more children at risk. No longer has open door policy for parents to discuss issues with school all must be handled by set appointments which takes days. If your very involved with your child and their education this is not the school it use to be...
