    The principle is very hardworking lady and teachers but the front ladies not friendly no saying hi or friendly welcome and their tone of language is loud while they speaking to kids.Please show some respect the parents.

    this school year that just ended were my two youngest first time ever in public school. They had a hard time adjusting but they fell in love with the school. the principal and staff at this school were very supportive. My children came home everyday with something new to show or tell me. The teachers are excellent teachers who want to see their students succeed. I am glad I decided to let them attend this school and they are already talking about the upcoming school year.
