    This school isn't for every child! They paid more attention to certain types of students then others! My son had a difficult time from the day he started until we moved! He is now in a new school district and doing 100% percent better! I would think long and hard before sending your child there! Keep in mind that they changed the name! Principal and vice principal were never there on the same days and there was always a teacher playing principal! Many parents didn't speak english so couldn't really build relationships!

We also have a large enrollment of Hispanic Student and let me say that we are all proud of our principal and vice principal. we have a large participation of parent volenteer in our school

    Most teachers are excellent especially those in the Spanish immersion tract and the principal is dedicated. It's still going through growing pains as the elementary and middle schools recently merged. The main area of concern is lack of supervision of the older students in the hallway disrespectful language and behaviors and other issues around a school with a suddenly wide span of age.
