Great neighborhood community school with a strong focus on academics. Teachers and principal are great ,and the student body is economically and culturally diverse. Facilities are great and our child is thriving academically and socially. The school has a pool and a makerspace too. There was one bad teacher and she was removed last year and replaced with an excellent one.

Overall, this school has been great for our son. The teachers are almost all excellent (with one notable exception, and that teacher has been very difficult to get fired despite abusing her students verbally and physically). The specialists are amazing, with art, reading, occupational therapy, speech, music, gym and the library.
