    I went to this school a few years back for my fifth grade education I was bullied all year long the principal didn't have any regard for my well-being or safety. I would get beat up my things would get stolen I would get verbally attacked and no staff member would do anything about it.

    This is a great school and the staff are always on the game...I even had one of the maintenance staff people (I think his name was Jimmy.. a southern guy) help me one afternoon with some boxes. This is a great school. In touch and in focus with the kids and the parents

    This school has gone into the toilet since the merger of schools a few years ago. The academic scores are atrocious fighting between students is a common everyday occurance. Police are often in the facility. Do NOT send your child here if quality of education is a priority.
