This school was a very good school when we had principal Perez running the school. Parent involvement with staff was better. Lunches now are not the best and cold and small portions most of time .I went to school and needed to speak to the principal about my concerns on one of the 5 grandchildren and daughter that I have in this school. and I felt like they did not want to be bothered with me. I am not to happy with this school since Mr. Perez the principal that made this school B school.
