    "my son went here for his kindergarten year (2011-2012) and 1st grade(2012-2013). he loves it. both k-1st grade teachers have been great, i couldnt ask for better teachers. their new principle Mr Higgins is doing a wonderful job and improving the school. the only down falls is Columbia secondary school has taken over most of the building which is taking from the elementary school students. i hope soon the school board will realize that they are destroying a great school and will also bring back funding for the after-school program"

    "I have heard that over the years the school has declined but with the principle that we presently have Mr. Higgins I see different. This is my daughters first year in this school, she is in kindergarten. I have had some things that needed to be looked into but nothing that makes me want to take her out. The only REAL ISSUE I HAVE AND IM HOPING MR. HIGGINS SEES THIS BECAUSE I HAVE BROUGHT IT TO HIS ATTENTION BEFORE IS THE BATHROOM ISSUE. The kindergarten students are allowed to go to the bathroom in pairs but with no adult supervision. A few things have gone on in the bathroom which is not surpising for children but would not have happened if the was an adult with them. During recess an older child is permitted to take them to the bathroom. I do not agree with this because how do I know that my child is safe. Know one has any idea what is going on with these random kids at home but they are the ones chosen to be responcible for my child. Other than that I feel very good about the schol and what Mr. Higgins has planned. I will be joining the PTA for the 2013/14 to be a liaison for the parents to unsure that this school stays on the straight path and support Mr. Higgins"

    "I am very dissappointed. I was very optimistic in the begining. My son was in a kindergarden class with Ms. Lafalaise and everything was great. my son was reading at a second grade reading level. There was something so loving and caring about his teacher because my son would talk about her all the time. she made a positive impact on him. In 1st grade, tha was a different story. 3 different teachers within 1 month which was very stressful. They soon brought in another teacher which was Ms. Chanowitz. She was a very nice person but she could not control the students. Everytime I would walk into the class room the children would be running around screaming. meetings were not good. My son report card was horrible. I spoke to the teacher to find out what I can do to change this. Second parents and teachers the teacher did not show up. I have spoke to the principal many times as many other parents. The principal blames the students in class when she should be blaming herself for not listening to parents and making sure there is order in the class room considering she is the one running the school. Now my child is so behind. I am definitely not coming back next year."
