    "Gossip is a problem at this school. I've witnessed it in the front office with staff, self-important parents and teachers alike. Sadly, the subjects have no recourse and tend to be labeled as troublemakers. As long as you can avoid the "line of fire", you can have a positive experience at this school. I've found that the teachers who are not the most "popular" ones tend have better critical thinking skills and are more effective educators. The fundraising does provide extra programs and activities."

    "We enjoy the school and the staff. The ladies in the front office are always polite to us. We never worry about the fundraising and it's never been an issue we have noticed over the last six years. Best school by far and staff is always nice."

    "The truth is that all it matters is if you donate money at all times ( by the way it doesn't matter if you put many hours at the school helping in the classroom as a parent volunteer ), and also if you become good friends with the teachers. Some of the teachers are fair but others are not. Too bad Mr. Lehman who is an excellent principal is unawared of this issue. This will help your child get the top awards. If your child gets better scores on their Star testing and their academics well too bad!!! What counts is how much money you give and who you are friends with. So sad for the children that actually deserved high academic excellence. After all their scores help the school rankings. They make the school look good!!!!!"

    "soo soo true about the office staff. They ruin an otherwise nice school. Agreed ..they are both so passive aggressive and very unpleasant. Everyone I speak with has had awful experiences with both front staff members, makes for an unfortunate supposed "welcoming and helping" initial school presence. Maybe everyone complaining on here is not the way to change the problem. I suppose nothing can be done, since obviously the higher ups are aware of this too. Maybe nobody, except school parents who have to deal with this all the time, care about it! The teachers are very helpful and do a great job, and there is a lot to offer the children. Class size was supposed to go down, but didn't really see that happen."

    "We are proud of the school and understand why fundraising is important. It's worth it for the kids. The school has always been transparent about how they raise money for the programs. Parents know this before the enroll and I hope it continues to be successful. We appreciate the staff and volunteers dedication - a big thank you. Truly a wonderful school."
