    "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."

    "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."
