    The principal has no backbone and is only interested in appeasing the parents. Therefore the students and teachers suffer. His standards are low and he does not support the teachers with difficult parents or with disciplining the students. The student to teacher ratio has increased to approximately 28 to 1 due to the ridiculous reconfiguring of the schools.

    My mother father and his 4 sisters sister daughter and grandson went or are going there. A grand daughter will soon. 1923 to present.

    It's a school that believes in the importance educating of children and strives to be the best in that area

    This school has highly qualified teachers with only a few exceptions. They have high standards for academic achievement as well as discipline. The capable teachers are the reason this school is excelling. More parents need to be involved in the wonderful PTO.

    I love the afterschool programs. Great parent teacher group. Nothing but positive things to say about all of my daughter's teachers from K on up.
