    "I've had my child at this school for a while and have to agree that there is something seriously wrong with the principal here. A week or so ago, she was standing outside one of the classrooms yelling at the top of her lungs about a classroom door and waiving her hands around like a lunatic. She apparently was yelling because parents were outside a classroom where the children were young but were learning to independently enter their classroom. She was upset because the parents were there and the yelling was directed at them. But, the teacher was late opening the door to the classroom, so they were all standing outside waiting for her. Even worse, it was in the middle of the hallway where every parent walking by, including myself, saw the classless scene she made. And, this isn't the 1st time I see this type of behavior from her. Words to the principal: Don't yell at the hands that feed you. These same parents you are yelling at are the ones who GENEROUSLY fund your school. You should APPRECIATE these parents rather than treat them like dirt."

    "This is the problem with gifted is that it's become a label. My child is gifted and in fourth grade gifted class. My child can do far more than the others in his class. Instead of a gifted program it's a regular class. There is no difference in the two types of programs. This is all because of doctors who are taking a check and not given accurate test results for gifted program. It's sad because those who are truly gifted are suffering. I have not asked for a meeting with the principal, but may need to do so to address the lack of gifted program. Yes,I would expect a one on one from a principal if I asked. It's called a meeting and busy people schedule them. If a principal won't give one then I would call the superintendent of schools to complain. Might even file a complaint with the DOE."

    "Wow - bitter people hating on this wonderful school. While there are a high number of gifted kids - did you ever stop to think that may be a reflection of the community the school is in? If parents choose to have their child tested privately and the testing shows the child is gifted - how is that the school's problem? Sounds like some kids didn't make the cut. As for the PTA, perhaps they seem to get preferential treatment because they are valued as partners in the school - unlike parents who seem to only show their faces when there is something to complain about. Not even a one on one conversation with the principal (that's how to spell it by the way)? Amazing. When you consider there are over a thousand students - do you think she has time for a one on one with every parent? Ever try the assistant principals? I've found them both to be competent and quick to address my concerns. If you can afford to live in the area, you can afford to send your kid to the most expensive private schools. The fact that so many choose to send their kids here instead is a testament to how good this school is."

    "The administrative staff is extremely rude at this school. My child was having a lot of issues in class and my concerns were ignored for days. I kept on having to write down my concerns in a piece of paper every day, call the school numerous times to get someone to assist me. Finally after several days of waiting I get a phone call to address the problem, not even a one on one conversation with the principle. Unless you are on the PTA your concerns will not matter to this administration. The politics at this school are disgusting. The principle will brush off the problem with a bunch of excuses. Never have dealt with a principle with such a high ego. The gifted program is a joke at this school. Just have your child tested independently and they will be considered gifted. Some of the teachers are continuously yelling at the young kids. The administration should ensure they correct such bad practice. It is their responsibility to ensure our children have a positive learning environment. They can start by coaching the office assistant to be friendly or replacing her. Unfortunately I am not able to be part of the PTA and my child's problem has been belittled."
