    "This school has had a lot of change over the last couple of years. There seems to be no real leadership or vision for the school anymore which is sad because we sent our child there for the STEM program but it doesn't seem to be a priority any longer. We will be looking for a new school for next year."

    "We have been at this school threw 3 prinicpals & the current principle is AWEFUL. My kids have been called liars by the principal to other children. He tells the kids to come talk to him if they dont agree with something than he argues with them that they are wrong instead of listening to them. My daughter has been choked by a boy & then my other child was threatened by the boys mother in the front office. My daughter got in trouble for defending herself & taken into the principals office w/the boy & the princpal he then made both kids sign a document w/out another adult present. The principal didnt even call me until 6pm to explain what happened. 2 of my other kids tried to explain what happened during the incident & were told to stay out of it & the duty aides did nothing to stop the fight when they were in formed of it. The PE coach has yelled at kids in their face & belittled them in front of classmates. Ive had to go to district to get the nurse to look into a matter more. Over all I would never recommend this school & are happy to be leaving as I dont want my current kids or Kindergartener going there. I will dearly miss some teachers that we have been w/for years"

    "Yes that s right school doesn t only need a good principal but need to change some of the staff too. Some of the teachers are really good but others I regret sending my child to this school, soon she will be going to better school. Any way we drive so we rather drive them to better school. If your kids are smart, always get good grads and you always work with them on their studies don t keep them here, especially if they are gifted. Because you expect staff should be friendly and encouraging and towards education. But forget about cooperative and encouraging this schools gifted services staff is unfriendly, dominative, and BULLY. And I think its quite natural because talking to principal does not make any difference. Everybody in school is focus towards fund raising events/things and making money. Forget about kids and forget about education. Being a parent we need to move our kids to education."

    "This school used to be A+. After Mr. Clancy left the school went down hill. The new principal just doesn't work for this school. This used to be one of the best schools in the district but not anymore. The support isn't that great and the teachers seem defeated. Get a new principal and get the moral back up with the teachers."

    "We have loved this school so far. Mandarin Chinese is a great language to learn since it is spoken by the largest number of people in the world. There is always communication between the parents and teachers/principal. I am happy my son gets to be apart of the school as is he. He's always got a smile on his face when he comes home."
