    Horrible school. My daugter is in the first grade this year and her teacher has the most miserable attitude i have ever come in contact with. I tried to contact the prinipal to help my daughter as she is having trouble this year and no one seems to care about her succeeding. She comes home every night not knowing anymore then what was done with her homework the previous night seems like they do not teach in this school. I would highly reccomend sending your child to a different elementary school if you can

    I am so dissapointed with this school bullying is a major issue and my daughter is tormented everyday by older students in that school. The principle Mrs. Dewey mearly shrugs off each and every bullying claim. Some of these bullyies even physicly hurt my daughter and still nothing is done about it. I am understanding that the school is already under investigation and when the investigators enter the classrooms the teachers personality does a complete flip around. I found this out when my daughter told me the teachers were especialy nice when the investigators were in her classrooms. They even " pretend" to be in the middle of a project! Something needs to be done about this school...please! a concerned parent

    Terrible school....VERY bad principal .....only a few good teachers that REALLY care about the students. The school is filled with punks that like to bully other kids - kids always beating on other kids - the place is a mess!!!

    I am very happy with the education that my kids receive in this school. I think they are really good with all education aspects and the teachers principal and staff are always there to help and answer questions.
