Community Rating & Reviews

  • (1 year ago)

    Spend a minimal amount of time in this school and it's clear why it is rated as is. It's about the paycheck from everyone from the teachers to the front office. It's a positive thing that the students have a lot of homework. This ensures they get the assistance they need. Lacks teamwork and partnerships.
