    This school is terrible. My daughter is in kinder and there was no information given prior to school starting. On the first day the teacher said nothing to the parents. No communication at all. I continually get bills for lunch because the teacher keeps submitting names yet my daughter has never eaten lunch there. Weekly parent meetings are not welcoming or inclusive of English speakers. Everything is in Spanish and the atmosphere is socially isolating for non Hispanic students which can cause depression and self esteem issues when a young child is unable to communicate with other children and can't make friends because they only speak in Spanish to each other. If at all possible do not send your children here if you care for their educational or psychological well being.

    Great teachers and Staff very little parental involvement.Parents need to realize they are teachers as will.Not a very good neighborhood to have a school location.High Crime could be cleaner.

  • (8 years ago)

    Mostly hispanic population-the staff is great and seem to be very involved and caring of the students. The level of parent involvement I am not sure of it is not as I would have hoped.

    This school serves a diverse multi-ethnic community 70% of which are english learners. There is a solid cell based language arts program computer technology in every room. There is also an accelerated reader program. School wide discipline includes conflict resolution.
