This school failed my baby as a student!!!!! I complained of her being bullied no one followed up!!!! I emailed the teacher, weeks go by I receive a phone call of my child being suspended for the day because she defended herself!!!! My daughter is a student, quiet girl never has been in trouble!!!! They deprived her from her education!!!!! How was students able to push back and forth where was the teacher, however my child gets suspended for defending herself, yes she was tired of getting pushed around, I don't condone that behavior and education is key in my home!!!!! I am not finished yet stay away horrible; they don't care but I do.

This school is fantastic. Teachers and office personel are very involved. PTO always has something going on to involve families. My kids have attended other schools in the area and this by far is the BEST! Well organized staff, great communication, clean campus, and caring people.
