    I question this schools ability to work with special educaion students. My child is very flusterated and the school is having problem trying to figure out what work with hime. Every day there are tears and the bullying in this school is out of control.

    Great teachers who really care about the students. Great facility with neat bulletin boards to display the students' wonderful work. An exceptional support staff who care for the students as much as the teachers do. I could go on!!!!
