There is no parent teacher organization but I have always found the staff welcoming and helpful. They have five playgrounds. Perhaps this was written before the big new one opened.

My daughter is happy and doing well. I can meet her teachers at the end of the day or call for an appointment. It's a welcoming school.

Administration are always willing to discuss problems. The staff are friendly and interested in the students. My daughter studied there for six years and was happy. Other schools have administrators who live in ivory towers and avoid contact with parents. Not so here.
