    This will be our child's second year but probably his last. As stated in a previous revue there is a significant bullying issue that is not being addressed. Additionally the lack of diversity in this school is an issue. The staff turnover is highly unacceptable but under the circumstances understandable.

    Do not send your child to this school. My kids have been here for 2 years. They have good greads however with the constent change of Admin staff including principle the school has lots its shine. They have a hug "Bullying" problem and they don't do anything about it. kids are being beat up cussed out and hurt by teachers.

    I sent my daughter to this school because i was impressed with what I saw and the then principle Ms Peale I was very happy because she was off to a great start and her grades were thriving but the new principle C Porter is turning this school into a dreadful place (he wants to be Joe Clark) the 8th grade teachers are clickish and education is no longer the top priorty.

    They still have a few kinks to work out but the new principal is responsive to parental concerns.
