Teachers are good but leadership is lacking. My child is in 1st grade and it seems like in the 2 years my child has attended we have had a problem with the school we have to address. A lack of professionalism within the system. We always seem to come up disappointed in one way or the other every year. I would not recommend this school. In fact, if things don't change soon...we will be selling our house and moving to a better school district !
