Scales is a good school with dedicated Teachers and staff. The Liason for the school is an amazing woman and I encourage all parents to stay involved with their children's education and go to the Parent Meetings and volunteer once or twice a year. Everyone is necessary in the success of the children! Support the Scales staff who support your children <3

My son started in kindergarten here and is finishing off in 5th grade. I have overall been very happy with this school. I have appreciated every teacher my son has had every year and I very much appreciate the Principle and Vice Principal here. My son has been an honors student since the start and they have a very good program for the advanced children to ready them for Middle school and High school. I see a lot of potential this school can continue to tap into and it will just take enough teachers and parents to keep a momentum to create a strong support system that stays alive and passed down each year instead of needing to start over every year. I have been involved with the school and volunteered with the school some years more than not but Parent participation is for certain appreciated. The more I feel a parent participates in their child's education and with the school the better. Overall behavior in this entire district is concerning as I have experienced first hand and it is my suggestion the Superintendent utilize resources the school receives to implement a no bully program and or a program that focuses on right relations that teaches the kids how important their words and relations with each other are. Many of these children's parents cannot participate with the school as it is a poor area and parents are all working long hours so everyone is doing their best but I think the children have a great capacity to be taught to hold themselves to way higher standards of self governing and perhaps the school can create a theme of caring for each other as a familia. Bottom line the staff of this school cares very much and they deserve as much support as possible to create the best environment possible. Somehow bringing the children to understand their participation in the schools overall success by caring for each other would be huge. Lastly, please paint a mural on the gym stage wall! The gym/auditorium needs life. Please have more ART showing off and bring spirit to the place where we all gather to celebrate the children. Thank you so much Scales!
