Not one of the better public schools. But sadly, we were zoned for this school. We gave it a try and found that our child was falling behind and being treated more like a number than a human. We never built a good report with the teacher or the principle. PTA meetings were a joke. We are all much happier we got our child out. If I could give this school no stars I would.
