I do not recommend this school. We moved recently from New Jersey and the few months that my children are attending this school we noticed lower grades and lack of management from a few teachers of how to deal with certain situations with the students.

the teachers at friendship elementary school do not involve themselves enough in the classrooms,they hand out their work and assignments to the children but actual time spent explaining what they need is minimal my child is very discouraged,i have spoken with several other parents,whose children also attend friendship and they are troubled as well.this is the second year my child has attended this school and as far as academically this school is very disappointing in its support of child learning.
