I hadto pull my son out of this school. I used to love it. The Pre-K program is fantasic. However, once my son started Kindergarten everything changed. My son is a sweet child who loves to please, but his success has been thwarted at every turn by teachers and administration who have an "I can't" attitude. The assistant principal is very nice. However, she is not on your side. You can walk in with documentation, test results, independent evaluations, but if they can do less for you, they always will. If they think they can get more from you, they'll try. They know every child by name, but they don't put any thought into who they place in each class. They show very poor planning skills. Every year, my son's class has been split. In the first 3 months of 2nd grade, he had 5 different teachers. Autistic children need stability, and he definitely wasn't getting any, or an education. The final straw came when my son came home with bloody scratches. All the children knew what happened, but none of the teachers had a clue. His psychologist recommended I pull him from the school immediately, so I did. He's doing much better, but homeschool should never have been an option.

I'm giving the school three stars because of the office staff Raquel is excellent she treats the parents with respect and is very nice. The social worker for the school is horrible, needs to work on her communication skills with parents. Also if you need childcare for your kids try not to use the after school care I don't recommend it You won't be happy. Most of the teacher's are excellent it's because of them that I gave the school three stars they deserve five, but the school doesn't.

My son did start this year for the fisrt time on this school 2 nd Grade and he does love it, great teachers, the facilities are big and clean, the teacher gave him a lot of homework but I do prefer this than not homework, additionally the school offers extra classes called PTA which are wonderfull because the kids can choose what topic or sport do they want to practice after school hours. The do have also fair books and a lot of activies for the kids. Love the school not complaint at all.

Most of the teachers in this school are mean and rude. This school has a very cold and unfriendly environment. As a parent, I am not happy with the teachers (who are not helpful), the office staff is not pleasant, and the administration is never to be seen. I'm putting my child in a charter school this year.

At the begining I was not too comfortable with the school... but as time went by I noticed how interested my 9 year old became towards education... The teachers are very attentive and keep parents informed. I made the right decision moving them to Kendale Elementary! :0)

Administration and faculty work together to create a fun and creative learning environment! Small school so the students are all well known. Children are well prepared for the next step and beyond.
