    "I think the teachers the previous reviewer mentioned who seemed 'burned out and have lost their cool' are probably reacting to all the intense demands from the 'cliques of parents' who have created the 'negative social environment'. The old parents who rolled up their sleeves and got things done and turned this school around have all graduated out. When the school turned around it attracted that new 'entitled' parent you now see on the front lawn. They demand more and more from an already over worked staff and expect things will continue as they did before without putting in the work and even after they dismantle systems and procedures that were tried and true because they weren't willing to work as hard as the previous parents. Great Schools have Great Teachers that are SUPPORTED by Great Parent Groups and that means more than being a fundraising machine, it means being a Community. When you loose that, you end up with a bunch of disgruntled groups of parents and teachers, complaining about everyone else instead of getting busy and working on making this the best possible place for children to learn, grow and develop."

    "I agree with the previous post...this school isn't what it once was. Cliques of parents have created a very negative social environment. You cannot miss them as they stand around the front yard gossiping every morning and seldom say hi to the other families as they pass by...even ones whose children have been in their kids classes/grades for years. PE only once a week, no real fine art at all even though the school says it has the arts. There is a mediocre music program paid for by the parent org. API scores slipped a bit last year, and not sure how the transition to common core is going. No library as its become a classroom. A few good teachers, but many who seem burned out and have lost their cool. No GATE program."

    "This school isn't what it once was but I am a bit more hopeful since we got a new principal. This new principal at least seems open to talking to parents instead of avoiding us. Maybe we will actually be able to meet with this new one without having to email to request an appointment 3 weeks out. This new principal seems more down to earth and seems like she actually might put children before good statistics."

    "It's unbelievable the gains this school has made in the past several years, including in student scores, parent involvement, staff and principal collaboration, technology use, innovation reading and writing programs, and the list goes on. The school helps support kids at all ability levels, and parent fundraising goes both toward academic intervention and for additional enrichment. The earlier review (Aug. 23) about not offering a GATE program was inaccurate. The school offers differentiated classes (not just clusters) for 2nd through 5th grade gifted students."

    "This school is just okay, not bad and not great either, some teachers are good, but some are below avarage. It is a small school that just get rid of their library so they can use it as a new classroom for expanding school. The school asks for 100% participation on countless fundraising."
