    Reviews are obviously old and experiences before the new principal moved in. This school used to be and A and now is a D grade school and is terrible! Had to remove my kid. Problem kids are removed from classrooms for a few then returned. They tolerate misbehavior treat kids like they are savages and keep parents away from even volunteering and you can imagine why. My child told me all the time how teachers screamed at them like they were in prison. My kids grades improved a whole lot since requesting a transfer to a better grade school.
