This school could use some tlc such a fixing up the pot holes and painting .. needs a library to encourage kids in reading ... this school is listed as a elementary school but the staff doesn't treat the little kids as kids they treat them as if they are in highschool ... not to happy as to how the school is being run.. staff needs to show that they care a little more... my kids attend this school as it's the only one closes to us..
