    Incompetent staff. We moved to the area from another country. After spending a few months registering our son at Hyde Park Elementary just a few blocks from us they closed the school (did not inform us). When we arrived and I contacted them we were told we were being re-zoned to a different school but since we came from another country our son (a fluent English speaker) would need to go to VAS for ESL. We were told that our paperwork was already sent to VAS. After contacting VAS several times we finally learned that they lost our paperwork and we would need to get all notarized letters tax receipts immunization records again. We did this and I hand-delivered the documents. A few weeks later when we hadn't heard anything more we learned that they lost the paperwork again. And they couldn't remember me from the previous times. Then they forgot to put my son on the bus route so the day before school we needed to call a different school and convince them to get him on a bus. This isn't all of the problems we had but I am limited to how much I can write. Very poor administration. Trying to move away FAST! Final note they are ALWAYS eating in that office. Disgusting.

    My Grandson attends here and his kindergarden teacher Ms. Gaudet is Excellent. My grandson is a very responsible child and to see his desire to learn and his love of school is refreshing. The Staff from the Principal to the Office staff is exceptional. The programs and teaching methods are easily reinforced at home. The arts have not been overlooked. He loves Music and really likes the music teacher. The excitement for teaching and genunine interest in the children is conveyed in every note home. Ms. Gaudet is an Exceptional Teacher.
