    "I have read the negative reviews here and I want to say that I have had no issues like they are complaining about. My daughter is in Kindergarten and I am very happy with her education and I love her teacher. I am a very involved parent when it comes to my child's education and I have regular communication with the teacher and she always responds quickly, even on weekends! The only complaint I would have is that I feel the amount of schoolwork and homework is excessive for Kindergarten, but I also understand they are keeping up with the requirements that they have to teach the kids by the end of the year."

    "This is a school with high expectations. Many of these negative comments are from parents who do not follow the schools policy. I have seen many parents out of pocket and it is because they do not want to read the policy. The school is not in danger of being closed therefore, students are learning. The special education students are not socially promoted so they raise the bar. Public school just pass them on. Speak of your own experience and take accountability for your actions. These comments are very interesting to read. They are not the majority experience."

    "If you are considering this school I would strongly suggest that you research all your options. Communication is poor and faculty is extremely rude when it comes to serious matters. Your child will not be treated with respect or cared for as you would expect from a school. It is truly about the money that they are given and that you provide. The well being of your child will not be considered. I am very disappointed in the quality of this school and the carelessness that they provide to the children especially the principal. It saddens me that this type of leadership is responsible for a school full of children. I look forward to transferring my child to a better school and environment next school term. Please do not send your child there. You will regret it. From a parent to another it is in your best interest to go for another option"

    "I have seen this school over the past 4 years go from a school trying to provide a great education to their students, to a school who is making good on their promise and delivering an excellent education. Its elementary school could be a model for other schools to follow. Its middle school has become a school that emphasizes discipline and a positive climate for students to learn. Overall, I would recommend this school for any parent who is looking for a great place for their children learn."

    "My child attended the elementary school in the fourth grade an struggle with the overwhelming amount of school work. When I reached out to the assistant principle and administrative assistant, no response. When my child entered the fifth grade (middle school) the scholastic experience became worse. The communication with the principle, guidance counselor, and dean of students is terrible. My child was bullied, fought back in self defense and was suspended. When I tried to reach out to the guidance counselor and dean of students to look further into the cause of the fight, they were non-responsive. The teacher turnover rate is ridiculous. My child went months without a permanent Science teacher and never brought science work home the entire year. It appears that English and Math are the only important subjects (DCAS testing). The school is disorganized and after chaperoning a field trip, I can see the lack of control over the student body. I know a few other families who have not returned back to this school for the following year. Its a good concept, but a poorly executed school."
