    "This school has great teachers. But every since the new principal Shelly Hughes came, it has really gone downhill. This principal clearly does not care for the children, nor any concerns a parent has. If this principal is still there, I can foresee this school just getting worst every year. Very sad, because there are some very talented teachers and staff who made the school great before this principal came."

    "This is an awesome school! My son has been going here since kindergarten. He is now in 6th grade. The teachers are excellent and very involved with the success of students. They have great energy and are really happy to be teaching. They provide positive reinforcements which really encourage the kids to try their best. Its also great that the school encourages leadership skills and independence. Parental involvement is huge at this school. I love the visual arts and performance program. Overall have been very satisfied with everything the school has to offer."

    "I used to love this school. My son has attended for the past 5 years. I've now enrolled him in another school for 5th grade. My problems are with the administration and how issues are handled and addressed. In second grade, his teacher called us in said we should have him assessed for ADD so he could get meds to help him concentrate. I mentioned this to another parent and I learned that she also did that to 2 other students! He s done well up to and since then; I had him assessed and he does not have ADD. This year is the worst yet. I ve volunteered for the class to see that his teacher has no patience. He reported to me that in class she said to the students I m so frustrated I could cuss . Not an acceptable comment for a teacher to make. I ve also had a three occasions over the years to contact the principal and vice principal because of concerns I ve had on a few things. Their response is usually polite yet patronizing and my concerns have been ultimately disregarded. My expectation that the school value parent concerns and objectively consider their points of view is not unreasonable. Unfortunately, this is not the school to have such expectations."
