    "At the surface, this is a really good school. My daughters have been in 1st - 3rd and K - 1st grades. Curriculum is good. Safety could be an issue. There are cases of kids picking on other or smaller kids. Kids will argue and push each other around, but I think of a lot of that comes from the families up bringing. I've witness the students' relatives attitudes and manners during event gatherings, some of them are rude. I'm considering moving or sending my daughters to private school. They have the after school program to help students with homework and activities. It's more like a day care center to me."

    "Youmight want to look at other schools in the district before enrolling here. The other parent's emphasis on safety is overrated. My daughter is continually beaten up by other students, some not even in her class or grade level. Amazingly, nobody seems to notice when this happens, until she comes home with a black eye. As far as curriculum goes, its average. I actually teach her better at home, but I can't afford home school. Yes, the test scores are good, but there is more to a school than statistics. I suggest you hang around with a visitor's pass and watch how the kids interact at recess. You may see more than you like. Supervision seems to be more focused on damage control rather prevention."

    "This is a much better school then the others in the area. Concern that most students do not speak English so worried class standards are set back. New Principal so waiting to see how well he does compare to Ms. Lane."

    "Very safe school. Teachers are nice, yet push students for a better future. Principal does not participate as well, but the other staff members are very passionate and caring for students."
