Community Rating & Reviews

  • (6 months ago)

    A great amount of effort is placed on preparing younger students for the high school experience. There are a lot of co-curricular activities that are supported by the parents. Administration is supportive of the teachers and all activities in the school.

    There are a few excellent teachers but the school appears to lack staff accountability. Discrimination is very much present but is minimized by staff and therefore not adequately addressed. Administration fails to follow through with the zero tolerance policy related to discrimination and bullying.

  • (4 years ago)

    Unfortunately the schools in this district are more concerned about outward appearance than the quality of education provided.
