Things have gone downhill in the past 2 years. Not a warm feeling that was there previously. Kids can't be kids there, all is academic. Very little done to allow kids to be kids in younger grades. Overcrowded in several grades, 30+ kids. Not the best anymore.

The school is indeed run like a military camp. I actually believe it's more like a prison. I went to this elementary school as a child and I am so disappointed in my experience here thus far.
In response to the previous reviewer: okay, school probably should have contacted you to verify alternate dismissal plan. But I personally think it is parents' responsibility for sending a note every time there is a deviation from the norm, just to be on the safe side.
My son is in first grade, and is a very intelligent and well-behaved child. This school is run like a military camp. Parental involvement is restricted. There is a short daily recess and almost no physical activity for the kids -- that's just not how young boys are wired.
Both my sons go to this school. They absolutely have not spoke English? they were speak Russian. There were no teachers who speak Russian and children had many trouble in communication and understanding.
