The school is nice and my child did great his 4th grade year but once he got into the 5th grade his teacher was Bessie Kelly. Bessie Kelly needs to be fired or maybe demoted to teaching kindergarten. She's a horrible teacher, the worst I've seen in my life. She do not even speak good thorough English like a real teacher should. Seems like today anybody could be a 5th grade teacher if Bessie Kelly is a 5th grade teacher.. She Sucks, if your child is in her class run for the hills really fast!
