Community ratings & reviews

  • (2 years ago)

    This community is very very closed unless your the right family hard to get help for your kids.

    Moved here from another state. The teachers and School officials have been great! My child is getting the education she needs to succeed in the years to come. I like the small class sizes. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who likes personable and caring teachers and the extra help the children get to acheive their educational goals.

    Teachers are great. Administration is less than pro-active. This community is very very closed. Unless you were born and raised here or have "connections" and/or lots of money do not bother putting your children through this school district. It is rough!
