School Reviews

2   10/22/2010
The staff are arrogant, believing high test scores to be the first and last word on the quality of education, when in fact their student demographics guarantee the high scores. They see the parents and community only as a source of funding for the many programs they love to purchase. Every contact from the Principal is centered on a fundraiser. There is very little evidence of a school-wide commitment to the success of all students.
