The education is good but the safety of the kids is not their main concern. Unsafe dismissal area where sewer drain is uncovered and anyone can walk up and get your child. Retention pond not gated and homeless people standing in front of the school begging and harassing you as you come and go. Bathroom not working and the one available to the kids is filthy.
