I don't know cause I wanted to send my kid there cause its close to my house until I heard about all the drama that goes on over there. The other comments say some of the same things I keep hearing.
This school had a rich history of serving all students well. All staff was highly qualified and worked with the community to bring great opportunities to the school and the families enrolled. The past few years have been demonstrated the opposite. Some community members avoid the school and the students enrolled are treated inappropriately. Students are not enticed to stay in class or even in school. When a problem arises with children as young as 4 years old the current principal has been known to call the police or use it as a threat to parents so they can come pick up their children.
Overall, my experience at this school was a 4 out of 10, but could have been a 7 had we not had ineffective and unsupportive leadership over the last couple of years.
If you value your child's education, self esteem, social development, etc. DO NOT ENROLL YOUR CHILD AT THIS "SCHOOL". They lack so much it is a wonder they are still allowed to operate. Do your child a favor and keep searching.
