    Love this school. The teachers are very dedicated to success of your children. They take the time to help all students in the process of learning materials. I would recommend this school for families.

    GREAT GREAT GREAT! I think this school is wonderful especially for the surrounding area. I would in no way send my child to any of the other schools.

    This is my son's second year attending this school and I cannot wait until we can move him out of this school. The school's learning and social environment is at it's lowest and I am very concerned for my son's safety while attending this school.

    I believe that some teachers really want to help the students out at this school I also feel some teachers are fed up with the students behaviors and interruptions during class time I feel that there is a potential for this school to improve drasticly but it will take some strong modivation and structure to make it happen. I believe that the principle is workingdeligently to make her school function properly and her students learning approprietly.If I could help this school in any way I would have to say they really need to place the disruptive children in a different room with a teacher who has been trained to handle children with behavior issues to help guide them on how to interact appropriatly with teachers classmates and society. you will have more instruction time with min. interruptions children will not follow a disruptive classmates behavior. A child will be saved

    This school in my opinion has improved over the years. My children enjoy the after school activities like chess club and twilight.

    This is a good school. My only complaint is the last minute notices for awards events and field trips. Working parents need more notice to receive time off from work.

    I think overall this school is very diverse and cultured when it comes to teaching the children about different ways of life. Unfortunately I beleive this is the schools strongest point. Some of the teachers are outstanding and you can see that they want to teach the children and they are not teaching just for the money but in my experience just as many are only interested in a pay check. If you do not take the initiative to make sure your child is really learning in this school regardless of what the report card may say you will end up like me learning that your child was just pushed along in school. I don't think there is enough focus on education. They focus on education when it comes time to do State mandated Test just to meet the minimum to get State money. Look at the test scores for your
