I do not recommend this school to anyone. The teachers are pathetic and so is the principal. There is no parent involvement because they dont want you in the school to see how they mistreat your child. There are no field trips or class parties. It is run more like a military school rather than a elementry. Bottom line is overcrowded, unqualified teachers, miserable enviroment!!!
