I'm a long time parent who's 3 children have attended this school. I was very pleased with the school and the administration the past 4 years however, since they have change their principal ( and almost all of the administrator staff) the school has gone downhill. Many of the great teachers that my two oldest children had have left the school this year. The new administrator is not approachable and does not communicate with the parents. They are very unorganized and don't address most of the issues/concerns that parents have. Another disappointing change is the loss of their plant manager. The campus has become very dirty, the bathrooms are not cleaned thoroughly and the lunch area is a mess. It's unfortunate that this is what's become of this great school in my community.
