    We moved to the district at the end of my daughter's second grade school year. We moved specifically for this school and the wonderful principal there was at the time. Little did I know that principal wouldn't be there the very next school year. The new principal is not friendly with the students and constantly speaks down to students and parents alike. The teachers are not competent when they do show up for work resulting in poor test scores and learning environment for our children. Although this is public school the principal and staff have expectations of a military academy. The children are expected to be silent or whisper throughout the whole school day with no exception for lunch and recess. We are now in my daughter's last year at this school and I just can't wait for it to be over. I am so disappointed in the school as a whole and feel foolish for paying the exceptionally high taxes to pay the salaries of these lackluster individuals at this school.
