    "This school was very fun, but the food needs some work. It is too greasy and unhealthy. The quesadillias were literally dripping with grease. Also, some of the teachers pick favorites. To me it's okay if a teacher really likes the student, but the favorites sometimes don't have to get any punishment even if they did something detention-worthy. Overall, the school is ehh, but I had an interesting experience in my years there that really taught me important lessons."

    "Don't bother calling the school if you have a question or concern. Your name and number will be taken but you will not receive a follow up call. The academics at the school leave a lot to be desired. My son feels frustrated and bored in class because he is not being challenged. academically. When my husband and I have spoken to his teachers about this, we have been told that they give him "time to do things on his own." The new accelerated program is a joke due to "lack of funding". It's very sad as a parent to watch a child who was once so enthusiastic about learning become disallusioned and give up."

    "i have to agree with the posting from 2/16/08 the parent who has the 1st grader who is stressed and scared. i have been every involved in the school with the pto and just being there in general my son is in 2nd grade and last year was scared to death of his teacher and hated school he still has issues with year while he likes his teacher he hates being there he feels way too much pressure i dont remember school at this age being so pressured there is way to much push for the kids to learn everything now now now and the ratings and grading of schools throughout the distric is too much presure the disctric need to back off , make this time of learning fun for the kids we are setting a like or dislike in this case for learning for life here"

    "In my honest opinion, the teachers are overstressed and I have witnessed comments and attitudes toward the kids that were unacceptable. I have heard children being told to shut up and I don't even tell my dog to shut up. What gets me is if a student were to tell another student to shut up, that student would be in trouble for saying it. Isn't that a double-standard? The screaming/yelling at children that I have observed is just appalling and makes the school look bad because the people in charge are not stepping up to stop it. My daughter is a 1st grader and has recently developed anxiety attacks because she is afraid of her teacher. This is just unreal to me. I think the teachers need to be offered stress management classes or something because this is ridiculous."

    "The 'foreign language lessons' are a joke. They occur after school, and the child gets about 10 lessons. Foreign languages are NOT A PART OF THE ACADEMIC CURRICULUM!!! There is a band, which your child can optionally join in the 5th grade. HOWEVER, this turns into quite a LOT of hostility among other children towards your child's participation in the band. If your child gets involved in the band, then he will be socially ostracized and labeled a 'Geek.' Buying a house in this school district was the MOST REGRETTABLE MISTAKE OF MY LIFE! There is NO ORCHESTRA!"
