    This school isn't as bad as many of the schools in the state of virgina. The teachers are supportive and helpful. They get right to the important points. They help my students get a better understanding of the concept. I recommend this school a 100%.

    My son goes to this school now. I love it. The teachers are very helpful and at parent/teacher night they showed they CARE. I don't judge a school based on the students even though that will have an affect on the other kids it doesn't reflect how the teachers teach and how other 'good' kids excel. I believe a child can excel if they stay focused on learning. I don' t think the mean kids/bullies/cliques should be the focus of this school's rating. The teachers (academics) after school programs sports etc. are what makes a school good or fail. Blame the parents of those 'problem' children NOT the school.

    In all of the schools that my child has been in across the country this was the worst. The staff tries hard but the school is full of bullies and security problems. Children are afraid to use the restrooms in fear of being beat up. Think twice before you send your child here.
