Great Staff! The teachers and other staff really care for the students! I love the teacher-parent communication, they always keep me informed and updated on my children and what is going on in the school! They have a great after-school program! Also, the school is very clean!

Lack of communication from teacher especially and in the car rider line. I always have to pull out of line to wait for my child as if they didnt have almost 10 minutes to walk from the class to outside. Homeroom teacher doesn't send home grades nor does she respond back to messages or class app when I voice a concern or question about homework, upcoming tests, or grades.
I love the involvement between the facility and parents. Love how if there’s something going on with my child their teacher will contact me directly to find a solution to the problem.
