I do not recommend this school to anyone or anyone whom cares about their childs safety. My child was bullied for a week straight in the second grade! Yes I said secong grade.I tried contacting the principal repeatadly and when I finally spoke with her she said she had parent meetings with them and all was resolved. This was after the first incident.. And all the negative behavior of these kids continued. Seriously why was I not notified of these so called meetings when my child was being bullied? There so caled zero tolerence is crap. This school is ran by all women and all though I am a women these women have their favorites. Pretty sad! Mrs. Dewey is not a proper principal she is very fake and this to me is not cool.!!!!!!!!!!!

As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
