    "The principal of this school is rigid, not open to ideas and micro-manages even the way the kids play on the playground. She doesn't see the whole picture and doesn't understand real world day-to-day school function. Morning traffic was down to a science with the previous principal. Ever since she took over, 10 minutes in line and you still won't get into the parking lot. She only stands by the gate to make sure the adults have a badge to get into the school (where the badge you can obtain in the office by signing any name on the check-in book). She could've use her time effectively to manage school traffic. Put the old principal back. Majority of the kids don't like this principal and feel they can't trust her."

    "The new Principal is wonderful! She is bringing so many great changes to this school. She sets high expectations for both teachers and students. She truly knows and cares about her students. She greets each child every morning by his/her name, and she is out on the playground during lunch and recess to ensure the rules are being followed. She is available to listen and answer any questions or concerns parents may have."

    "Not a fan of the new principal. She can be rude in her email responses to parents, and I agree with the previous poster: She is rigid and autocratic and not open to suggestions. I received such bad service one day that I am considering transferring my child asap!"

    "The new principal is wonderful. She is a strong leader that has high expectations for her teachers and students. The principal is always available to listen and answer questions from parents. She works extremely hard to ensure learning is taking place every day! Both of my daughters have outstanding teachers that strive to create an environment which encourages learning. Both teachers communicate regularly with parents, challenge their students, and care about their well being."

    "New principal lacks rapport with the students and parents. School environment has changed drastically. There is an air of suppression. Her leadership style is rigid and autocratic and leaves little room for suggestions, a far cry from the previous leadership."
