This staff, especially those in the office and the principle, could really use some lessons in persoal relations. I rarely saw a smile from anyone there in the year my son spent at the school with me visiting the school on almost a daily basis. When I would go at noon (he was only in school half day) to pick my son up, there were reguarly children sitting in the hallway, evidently for getting in trouble unsupervise. When I asked about this, I was told that they were under the supervision of the teachers that were in the teachers lounge. The teachers lounge is down a short hall and around a corner....not much in the way of supervision going on there. One afternoon I walked into the school and passed about 4 students out front cleaning up the flower beds, again no adult present. I asked the office staff and was told that the principal was out there with them. Kind of odd as I passed her inside the school as I was going to the office. I have never heard of a person being in more that one place. My son is now headed to Washington-Hoyt where my daughter has been for two years and I have never experienced any of these issues

PROS:
CONS: UNFRIENDLY, seems to see nothing wrong with leaving kids unattended
