    As a parent with a child in elementary middle and high school I have been more delighted than disappointed with my experience for the past 10 years. The smaller class size allows for more teacher/student familiarity. My largest complaint would be the lack o froom in the lunch room literally with many children choosing to not eat or fix a sandwich due to long lines to get a hot meal.

    I am very happy with the quality of of education at our elementary school. I have two young children in this school and all of the teachers principal and school staff know my children and the other chlidren by name. My daughter needs special help and our school provides it and includes the parents in the decisions about her needs. Also my sons teacher was concerned that my son might have a speech problem and referred him to someone. Although your students are from a low income area they recieve a quality of education that exceeds other schools in the area. The class sizes are smaller so that the students that are having problems do not fall between the cracks and get left behnd the rest of their class. Also the teachers volunteer time to tutor these children proving they care. Our school is outstanding.
