This school lacks discipline as a whole. The 6th grade teachers are not teaching the kids nor helping them. The kids have laptops that are a complete distraction to their learning. They are allowed to go on YouTube throughout the day. How can you teach when the kids' brains are focused somewhere else? This school is horrible, which Removed because our tax dollars go to its improvements and I don't see that happening anytime soon. Not under this administration.

Current classes have reached a tipping point and changed substantially starting in 2017 and continuing the slide in 2018. A lot of families pulling kids out to got to private schools. Was a good school, but becoming merely a fair school.

Great school. I'm very glad that it is very diverse so that all students have an advantage growing up with different cultures and people.
