Terrible. We have attended ceremonies, PTA meetings and had several teacher parent meetings

Horrible. Administration is all talk and no action. Lacks communication with the parents on student issues. One administrator will say one thing, the next day, the other administrator has changed day one's decision. Lack of concern for the student being harassed, and coddling for the kid that's the problem. Repeat offenders are created by being allowed to continue behaviors that are not addressed. Bathrooms are disgusting, doors broken, leaking toilets & sinks, toilets, sinks, and urinals that do not flush. Restrooms are few in far between because most are closed. Old wooden bathroom stall doors that should've been replaced 20 years ago. No soap or papertowels for these kids to wash their hands. Overall DISGUSTING.

My experience at this school has been great. The teachers really care about their students. They always have time for my questions. The school staff is also very helpful. The school homework help is a great tool.

My experience at the school has been fantastic. I might not be the school and a nice rich neighborhood where I park for my child to go but the staff is amazing and my child has learned so much for example she was getting a D in math and with homework help before and after school she brought that D to an A.
