    This was a great school up until a few years ago! The principal at this school is terrible I'm so glad my last child is going to 6th grade in the fall so we don't have to deal with her anymore. There are two secretaries at the school the one who sits by the front door right as you walk in is amazing...the other not so much. I think that the teachers are okay most of the good ones seem to be retiring or getting forced out which is very unfortunate. I wouldn't be surprised if it had to do with the principal's poor leadership. All in all its an okay school but I'm glad to be done with it.

    My Kids will be attending this school in the fall of 2012 I have heard very good things about it I am looking forward to a great school year.

    The office staff and the principal are not friendly at all. We were dissapointed with the new principal. The school is always trying to make money and charge students and families to attend most events. The music and drama programs are great! The new music teacher is phenominal! Mr. Myzak is an amazing teacher!

    I think the staff at Pasadena are wonderful. I could not have hand picked my kids teachers and gotten a better group of wonderful teachers. The principle is also a godsend.

    I have 3 children who have attended this school for the past 6 years a kindergartener (now first grader) a third (now 4th) grader and my oldest who just finished 5th grade. The teachers are wonderful. Supportive responsive and patient. The classes are small and the school offers many after school activities.

    This is the best school and I am so glad my children go there. The school's population is very small (close to 300 students) and the teachers are wonderful. The school just reopened in a brand new building and it is beautiful.

    Great school. The parents and teacher are all close there are so many events that take place here. The school is great and everyone knows everyone. Everyone is involved!
