THe teachers are qualified, but the school lacks guidance and discipline. The children are left unsupervised after lunches, where a great deal of bullying & harrassment occurs. Some of it violent. The administrators are not friendly, personable or approachable. The district itself seems to be in trouble, but how much worse than other comparable schools is unknown. It appears worse now than 5 years ago to us, despite the grand renovations. Oh and add an on campus ChicFilet, then take away half the year of PE for 6th graders....it's not exactly healthy either.
