    I do not believe in this school. It has gotten worst with all of the fighting and children that are not so great in this school. I have decided to pull my child from this school as I had another child who went to J.B. Young and always had other children trying to fight her. I do not think this is the best school to send your child to.

    I have a grandchild at this school and she is receiving a wonderful education. The teachers are outstanding. I am a retired principal and know quality when I see it and this school is quality!
