    "This school is by far one of the worst schools my kids have attended. Moving from another city I would definitely stay far away from this district. The principal is horrible and does not show any type of involvement. They do not help the kids exceed. They put limitations on what a child is capable to learn. They make it complicated for parents to be involved. It almost seems like they prefer no parent involvement. Please... If you value your children's education, do not allow them to attend this school! Listen to all the bad reviews because they are right!! What a joke of a school and joke of a district!!"

    "I can't imagine a worse learning environment...I have been so appauled with the schools performance that I can hardly think of words to describe it. First off - if your kid doesn't speak spanish, you'd better hope they pick it up quickly...and the teachers spend so much time with the ESL students and curriculum, that the english-speaking kids hardly get any personal attention. The classes are overcrowded. There is absolutely NO parent-teacher autonomy...you have to practically threaten theese people to get any information out of them about how and what your child is doing in class. This year, they didn't even send home information about scheduled down days and in-service days. The standards and methods they use for teaching are also very strange - I have to reteach my child almost every lesson she "learns" in this school, because their methods are simply ridiculous, and make no common sense. Of course, that part is probably part of the "no-child-left-behind" catastrophe, and not an exclusive problem of this school. My child will be attending private school next year; and I feel terrible for the families who are STUCK in a position where their kids HAVE to go here."
