Maurice Sendak Elementary School Reviews
It is not a good school and does not care about good quality of education.
Maurice Sendak is a good school and I strongly encourage you to take your kids there they have PreK-5th .At this school I like the Principal,the staff and with the cut they will only have the office manager and one secratary for 659kids and all the work they do it is a lot but they smile and help you and sometimes they eat their lunch late and sometimes theres a lot of paper to send home for the parents they dont eat lunch at all,and when there is an event at school ,the Principal,and everyone in the office will just have an apple or what ever fruits or a piece of cookies or a cup of coffee thats all they have until they go home.I hope that the parents come and work togther with the Principal and the Staff to help the kids and get the community to join force to build the future of tomorrow.When my kids go here I'm happy and if I have a question I go and ask or talk to the people in the office or make an appointment to talk with the teacher,or who ever will help me.
