    "I think this school is awful! I witnessed someone on the staff screaming at a children during recess, calling them names and making sarcastic remarks, when I asked who this person was I was told I was not entitled to that information. As a parent I believe that I am entitled to know who anyone that is in contact with my child in any way shape or form is in that school. I can say with things I have seen and heard that I do not have one positive thing to say about this school. Many of teachers are not involved with the students they don't know what is going on in their own classrooms. Going to administration is even worse the Principal could care less about the parents or student and just tells you what you want to hear to make the situation go away! I tried going to the superintendent and later found out the person I was speaking to was someone that recruited teachers for the school, but lead me to believe in conversations he was in charge of this school. I even had a teacher attack me in a social media group and when I went to block her to not have to deal with nasty comments I found out that she is a teacher of this school! Outrageous! Avoid this school at all costs!"

    "I agree with the parent of May 12 below. My family wasn't pleased with this school, either. We've had children here several years, and we've seen a decline since the first principal left a few years ago. The new principal isn't personable at all. I've said a cheerful ''good morning''' to her several times, and I barely get a ''hello'' back in a friendly voice. The teachers are 'meh.' I don't agree that they're 'only there for a paycheck,' but they are overworked and severely underpaid. Plus, with this new Common Core garbage, I'm sure they're working even more and more. Yes, this school for sure could use some improvement. maybe the district should just come in and clean house - transfer teachers here and there. Give everyone a fresh start."

    "I think it all has to do with the kids. If they want to learn, they will! Love the school and the teachers. There are a couple things that could use some improvement, but overall....GREAT!"

    "Let me just start by saying this-if we weren't so underwater on our home and could afford to move to a better district, WE WOULD. I see people in the Wesmere/Wedgewood communities moving in w/kids and I want to tell them RUN!! It's a sad thing when the teachers even talk negatively about the principal (low morale). Also, if you have a child with learning disabilities, this is NOT the school for you. The spec-ed services are a huge let-down. There is NO going 'above and beyond' for your child at this school. My daughter is in 5th grade and we cannot WAIT for her to leave this school. It's been a battle trying to get her the services she needs and keeping on the teachers to abide by her IEP is ridiculous. I've written to the District (the super and head of special ed) on several occasions - the super told me he would 'look into it,' and that's the last I heard from him. My daughter's teacher was NOT following her IEP despite many conversations about it w/the teacher, so I wrote to the special ed director of the district (I didn't even bother with the useless principal) and heard NOT a word. These people are here just for paychecks, NOT to further your child's education."

    "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."
