    i was really worried about my daughter starting kindergarden this year she has a bit of a temper and is not use to strangers but i was very pleased with the staff and principal they attended to her and made her feel comfortable. and i was also pleased that the assistant princibal was my own when i was a child she loves the school her friends that she has made there and i dident know who much she loves doing the work she is learning alot! there was only one thing that i dident care for witch was the cafeteria attendents were klnd of rude and really pushy with the children....

    My son is in kindergarten at this school. So far I notice that the school alerts us to certain information in a late manner--case in point my son received an academic achievement award on a Friday in Feb 2007...guess when the school sent home the notice to attend the assembly? Thursday afternoon. I do like his teacher she is nice enough and seems to try hard...but overall I am disappointed that my son's father wants him to attend this school---only because it is near the home. I much prefer him going to a private school. Also I have never been asked to become involved. I don't see anything about the PTA etc--until fund-raising time but the teacher is lovely she lets me come in to bring treats party things for birthdays etc.

    I do not like this school at all. It's does not foster an academically challenging environment. Student's aren't really inspired to achieve their best. I also do not like the way the administrative office handles disciplinary actions in certain situations. I am taking my child out of this school and putting her into private school.
