School Reviews

  • Recommended November 12, 2014 - New principal is more interested in increasing test scores instead of actually teaching the children skills. All teaching is geared for academic testing that happens during the year. High turnaround of teachers - this past school year saw a loss of about half their staff. Also special education in this school is overlooked. One of the classrooms was closed due to not being able to find an appropriate teacher. Not much in diversity in this school - either Caucasian or Asian. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended November 04, 2007 - The school has very stringent academics and good quality music and extracurriculars and principal. We were disappointed with the first grade teacher Jeremiah Jeffries because he was very lazy. Except for that, it is a very good school. - Posted by Parent
