    This school is very clicky and it's been difficult for our family to make friends with the existing group. The class sizes are very large and children do not receive enough individual attention. There are at least several teachers at the school that I know of that actively bully the children and parents.

    My daughter started here in kindergarten and is now entering 5th grade. Every teacher she has had has been engaging and attentive. I wasn't expecting the high level of education that she is getting from this public school and we couldn't be happier. There is strong parental involvement; a school garden Halloween festival book fair movie nights and more. The school is attractive and very clean. We love it!

    Exceeded my expectations of a neighborhood public school within the OUSD system. We have a truly gifted principal the teachers are strong and the parents and families are welcoming involved and enthusiastic about constantly improving the school community. Best of all this is truly a diverse school - ethnically socioeconomically and also in terms of family composition. This is a gem of a public school.
