This school does not even come close to the standards I would hope for in a facility to teach my children. Not only do they not challenge students who are faster learners but they seem to cater to esl students more than any one else. The staff seems very frustrated to the fact that they are not allowed to do more for their harder working students as they are pressed to hold true to the "no child left behind" program. Further more there is a huge problem with bullying and racial segregation between the students. My children had to suffer 2 years at this school and we are moving specifically to get them into another school.
