    This is an okay school. Seems to be geared more towards athletics than academics. They claim to want to be known as the most parent friendly school in the county but seem to discourage parental involvement. They tend to label you as a problem parent if you ask too many questions. If your child is an athlete then this would probably be a great school for them. Otherwise not so good.

    I would like to see more recess for the children and more parent involvement in the school. I would like to see more tutoring going on for the children that need it most. All the activities are o.k. for this school. I'd like to see better food for the kids to eat.
