School Reviews

  • Recommended September 12, 2011 - Do not send your children here for fear of never hearing from them again. I applyed to this school for my son who is in second grade. I was told that he would have a spot and was invited to their meet the teachers event. I had some further questions, but when I called the direcor...nothing. I couldn't get in touch with her. I left four messages! Needless to say I wouldn't allow my son to attend this school if is was the last in the district. - Posted by Parent

The Parents’ Guide to Common Core

White Students are Now the Minority in U.S. Public Schools
Increasing birth rates among immigrant families from Asia and Central and South America, combined with lower birth rates among white families, means that for the first time in history, public school students in the United States are majority-minority. This shift in demographics poses difficulties for schools as they work to accommodate children of varying language abilities and socio-economic backgrounds.
