The principal who is there now has taken all the joy out of elementary school for the teachers and the kids. I have witnessed the school go from a 5* three years ago to a 2* this current year. This is just my observation. High teacher turnover.

The school had the best principal in the district. Under the leadership of Dr Allen the school achieved top academic honors with fewer resources and was able to focus on academics and connect with the community. Unfortunately, the new principal lacks the charisma and leadership qualities. Under her reign the school is aimless and in danger of losing its direction. However, the school has the best music teachers, social workers and the greatest librarian.
