School Reviews

A good school with a long-time principal and many long-time teachers. My experience is based on 1995 to 2006 children enrollment. An extremely high level of parental involvement is obvious. Music and art offerings are limited but the community has many offerings. The building is OLD with many updates and mostly well maintained. The school has an inordinate amount of Hispanic students due to bussing from the north end of the district. Other district school do not receive as many ESL students and this building does not receive enough funding to deal with the ASL population.
