This school has good students well prepared by parents at home. However most of the teachers are not high quality. The teachers can do whatever they want there is nothing you can do to fix things the school is run like a dictatorship because they know they get good test scores based on parents' work so why would they care about what the parents have to say? Parents suggestions are rejected. Parents I talked to say you need to go through this school to go to Happy Hollow Elementary in grade 4th which is supposed to be better. Hopefully. Overall not a good school at all but you can certainly be sure your child will be surrounded by children of parents who value education and I think that is good motivation to go to this school and put up with some annoying (and some borderline abusive) incompetent teachers. Also the secretary is extremely rude and unfriendly.
