    I feel the school has an excellent educator base who really care about the children and want them to succeed. My daughter has attended the kindergarten program. I am impressed with the teacher's desire to cater to their needs in what could be a very distracting and new environment for children entering elementary school.

    I believe that this school could use a lot of work. The principal is great but she is leaving at the end of the year so who knows what will come of this school. I truly believe her to be the only strong point of the school. The curriculum is minimal and have never seen such minimal requirements put on students. The teachers I have encountered are below average and to me it seems like the aides work harder than many of the teachers.

    My son did his pre-k program here..The pre-k teachers are awesome.And so the principal.She is very friendly to all the kids.

    The staff is somewhat not to be desired. They need to be more accommadating to all kids. Not there for just a pay check. Be a strong voice for bullies if there are any in the school and a strong watchful eye on all kids. Always put into effect the Positive Behavior information learned in the classes they attend in order to inforce Positive behavior. Assisting Admin. need to go to public relations class in order to properly and respectfully talk to all types of people entering the school. Being a snob in not proper professional behavior in a public career.
