    This is the worst school in mecklenberg county. My daughter was enrolled there and honestly i wish i wouldn't have put her there. The teacher she had was horrible didn't help or explain anything. The staff is worse they still have not sent all her required paper work to her new school and its been a month. Honestly the school needs to be closed

    If parents have a choice of where to send their children I would not recommend this school. The principal and assistant are very harsh towards the students and instructs the staff to be harsh as well. The principal is very unprofessional with the staff and some parents. Children are constantly moved from teacher to teacher and do not gain a sense of belonging and therefore do not perform well. Children recieve some music etc. but are usually forced to mixed classes because of staff absences. Students had little or no exposure to technology. I would not recommend this school if the option is available to go elsewhere.
