    I have had two kids go into this school. They did great until they switched principals. Some of the teachers are the best you will ever meet in your lifetime(Mrs. Vogel). The administration is cold and nonresponses to parents and children. I have seen Has delt with her first and chose to switch my child to Sauvie Island where her grades have improved in a record amount of time. Being a parent in this district I will never again let my child attend a school where she is a principal. Since she will be moving again for the 4th time to the mid school I will be send my kids to the local private school. I am not only a parent I work in this school distrist and have seen and heard things all parents should know about this school.

    Poor communication and no preparation for upcoming work load. School only sends home work once a week. If your child is struggling at all this school would not help.
