    My children are new to this school. There is absolutely nothing I like about it. I just moved into the neighborhood in April and decided to transfer my children due to the convenience. This was a terrible mistake. I wish I never would have transferred them out of their previous school. This school is ghetto and most of the staff are unprofessional and rude.
