    "One of the worst school in town. I was very displeased with the staff beginning with the principle and teachers. There is no structure, I didn't see my child curriculum for the year, teachers are too busy to meet, the principle is somewhere busy to take notice in how inconsistent the school in performing. I would not recommend this public school to any parent who care about their child's education. Your child will likely get bullied on just like my child. However i was very prompt in removing my son from a such dissatisfying environment. If you're looking to enroll your child into a school, look elsewhere before making the mistake I made."

    "My first child attended Kindergarten here this year and I really liked his teacher. I really was not impressed with the office staff though. Not very friendly and have heard negative comments from other parents as well about them."

    "I am very disappointed in this schools principle, I made a teacher request before school started because my daughter is having major trouble, she failed to fulfill my request and said she only makes environmental request. So I allowed my daughter to start with the teacher of there choice, big mistake. My daughter comes home with almost all of her work pages empty. The teacher realizes this and said in my conference that my daughter 'just says all well' if she can't get past the first problem. The teacher does not grade classroom work because it is just practice, she only grades test! I beleive (and the teacher does)that my daughter is deslexic but this school will not test her for it, I have to take her to a doctor they tell me. I am very disappointed in this school. I am trying to find a new school at this point."

    "I am extremely discouraged by the way the principle handles serious situations that have occured in both the kindergarten and 1st grade classes. I am very involved as a parent in my child's education, but I cannot tolerate the sweep under the carpet attitude, or the it will eventaully go away theories as utilized by this principle."
