    Bullying is a huge problem that has not been addressed in the 4 years my children have been going to this school. The teachers shrug it off and the bullying becomes hitting/slapping/tripping.. and we've had enough. The principal is very respectable and caring but the staff is hardly any of that.

  • (3 years ago)

    The Teacher's and Principal are caring and helpful. From the crossing guards to the staff members this school has always been underated in my opinion but is truly a top notch school.
