    "The teachers do a good job of teaching the children. Some are naturally better than others, but they all seem to be caring and relatively professional. The school administration is not very effective or consistent. Arbitrary punishments are handed out when necessary. None based on severity of the crime, but rather they are based on whatever mood the disciplinarians are in on any given day. The administration has a poor record of addressing bullying (of all types) in a proper or serious manner. The Director of Student Services? She lacks professionalism and is disinterested. Parents generally do not like or respect her work or attitude. All in all, the school is a bit above average, but could be so much better if everyone was on the same page, and put forth the effort to make it great!"

    "The school is great with the students that needs major help to the academically gifted/honors. The teachers encourage the kids to want to learn, and try to make it fun to learn. If your child needs speech therapy this is the place to go, the school provides it to the students for free. The school also prepares the students very well for high school, good enough to test into the top high schools if they choose."

    "Overall, the teachers are pretty good and seem to care. Sadly- the old principal has been promoted to superintendant and he is not good for this school. But-thankfully they got an outside person to take his position as principal. The lady in charge of discipline is completely ineffective and should be removed from that school."
