Administration is inconsistent. Often unfair and excessive punishments are given to students. Look at their suspension rates in relation to other schools within the district. Very little accommodations given to students who are above or advanced learners. Very disappointed.

Great School!! It takes my child 21 minutes to walk to school. Thats to far and there are no complete sidewalks, no crossing guardsanywhere until you get to the school. That early in the am is entirely to dangerous for the students to be walking. My child says the cars do not stop for them. Crossing guards are needed everywhere or more buses
