    I have three children who attend this school. My oldest will be going to the six grade 2014-15. All of them have been going since pre-k. This school recently got a new principal which has changed it school for the worst. The kids are expected to learn on their own. They tell you what your child should and needs to know but not teaching them. My son (middle child) was in the 2nd grade making all A's. You might think that is good well his reading level was early kindergarten. I had to enroll my son into Sylvan so they could improve his reading so he could past the crct. IT sad that Sylvan taught him more in one hour then the school he attend eights hours five times a day. The principal has a horrible attitude and act like she does not even like kids. I do believe the teachers want to be more involved with the students but its the principal. They do not work with kids who are ADD/ADHD or dyslexia (two of mines happens to be). They would rather put them in Special ed. If you have a student who needs special needs( 2 of mines) or a girted student (1 of mines). I would not recommend this school. I am currently looking to move so my children will get a better education.

    The office staff and Administration are very rude and unsupportive. They do not encourage community or parent involvement AT ALL. They really do not even want parents in or around the school except on Thursdays during lunch time. They have good teachers but lacking in professional administration and parental support initiatives.

    I have been along with my family migrated to USA and arrived at Rome on 30th July 2006. From 4th of August the schools were starting new acedemic year. I am very much worried while leaving India about the school admissions of my sons at USA. However I am surprised by the co-operation of administrative staff helping alian like me in admission procedure of My Son Karan Patel (6th Std.). During the tenure of first two months at School my son was feeling home scikness and missing me a lot as I have to go back to India for one month's time. The principal and teachers were noted the same and called me one day to discuss the issue. I am very much satisfied with the open discussion and highly admire the approach of the H'ble Principal and Teaches of the school. I selute all the staff members of the School.
