    This school doesn't deserve any stars because it is horrible. The kids are bullies and they take control over the teachers. I would never recommend this school to anyone because your child will be bullied. The moment that your child walks through that door people will be saying rude nasty and mean comments. The children have very inappropriate language and have very inappropriate conversations. Pleas save yourself the energy and DO NOT send your child to this school.

    This school is horrible!!! The principle cannot do her job!! My child has been physically abused on a weekly basis and the principle does zero about it not even contacting the parent to inform them of the situation that took place. My child was an honor student but lives in fear walking through the doors of this school. The principle likes to keep everything hush hush so it is not a bad reflection on her. If you know what s good for your child do not send them to this school it has zero learning environment. The kids in the classroom shout out all day long call the teachers names throw things around in the classroom run up and down the hallways threaten other students hit punch slap you name it and it s more of a prison then a school.

    Horrible school teachers can't teach and the interested students cannot learn in the environment provided by this school. On their website one of the beliefs stated is "everyone deserves a safe secure and orderly environment" but nothing is further from the truth at this school. Changes need to be made.

    Now that the previous adminstration has left this new adminstration has showen time and time again they can not lead only follow. My daughter is finishing her last year here and she is very happy. She reported a problem of girls bulling her and the adminstration didn't suspend them they just showed a video on bullying. The previous adminstration would not tolerate this crap. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN HERE.
