Great neighborhood school. I feel my child is safe without feeling like they are in a prision. Principal is very hands on and always present. Teachers like most schools are hit or miss. With any public school ( Military style charters excluded) they struggle with adacemics but do well with the resources they have. I am very happy with this school and recommend it.

30% of the day is spent on inconsequential things not academics. The administration is ineffective and controlling. They are not what they appear to be on the surface.
