    My nephew had a very successful first grade year at this school and his teacher was very caring and passionate about teaching. Her classroom management skills were remarkable!!!!!!!

    I am very unsatisfied with this school. The issue is regarding busing of preschool children along with special needs siblings. My two grandsons attend the school and live at the same address one is permitted to ride the school bus while the other has to walk in all weather with his mother to the same place the bus is going to. Makes no sense and the principal would only say it is policy and nothing more.

    I was disappointed with this school. The principal is never available the whole administration needs work. I was so frustrated I moved my three kids

    I since moving here two years ago I found that the school is run very well. I had problems with the principal when first enrolling my child. But it was cleared up after they fixed their organizational problems. A new principal is there now and is more accessible. The school is very neat and clean-- especially the exterior-- which is rare for city schools and have involvment activities for parents. The preschool opened up in time for me to put my 4 year old in and is very good as well. Teachers are accesible too.
