    "This school is horrible and it starts at the top. Ms V is unorganized and phoney. The teachers care but seem to be ha cuffed by administration. Safety is also a major concern. My son was put in a gym class with 60 other students an one teacher, the teacher said he complained but nothing was done by administration. Somebody is going to get hurt."

    "I am absolutley disgusted with this school. my son started kindergarden here and since day one theres been nothing but issues after issues with this school. I've never seen such an unorganized school like this one. the staff there are rude and not helpful there at all. My sons guidence counslor Ms. Lax has no manner and is rude to the kids there always yelling and being nasty to them there. instead of being angry with the kids she should be more nice, corpative and helpful. I i do not recommened this school for no child."

    "I'm very disgusted with this school. This school is a nightmare.The is an environment of chaos and disorganization. There isn't any personal touch here. My daughter is in kindergarten and will not be going there next year. The work seems to be juvenille and she's had three teachers in the past 5 months. Consistency is not a word they understand. Children need this to have a productive learning experience. The administrative staff (principal and vice principals) seem to be dismissive of parents concerns and issues. I can't wait for the schol year to be over and pray that my daughter hasn't been damaged by her learning experience here."

    "My chilldren started this school last year. Since then, I have seen some school improvement in math and reading. I would like to see more courses and/or classes for advanced students, so they will not get lost or have to be transferred out to more advanced educational schools. With Parents, teaches and students working together, we can bring this school up educationally where it should be. It takes unity, but we can do it!"
