    Poor Administration! Principal is highly judgmental and very unsupportive. I loved the school with the administrator back in 2004-2011. After that the school went down hill my child's awesome teachers began leaving as well. This made me have even less faith in administration. I pulled my other children out of this school as well due to administration...not because of the teachers. I love the teachers! This school needs some restructuring of administration. Get the old principal back!

    I am glad my child have great teachers. They are very nice and direct to the point. They make me feel like my child is in good hands "educationally". But the problem and conern I have here is the safety of my child. The front desk staff need to take into consideration that its very important to let the teachers know right away when parents call in to pick their kids up. It's happen twice that my kids been drop off at the bus stop. I had to really struggle to get their in time. This second time cause quite a stir the bus driver was upset I was frustrated and the staffs were clueless to what happeneded.
