    I think this school is a very well known school from my experiences. They have very intelligent students. Most people do not recognized the hard work and dedicating staff members.

    This school has so many problems I can't believe as a parent I sent my children there. Fights everyday out of control behavior in classrooms the kids lack discipline principal is all talk learning standards are far far from other schools in the community...best thing I did was pull my kids from this school. How long will this chaos last beforelong will the chaos be allowed to continued

    The teachers are highly qualified. There are ongoing concerns about safety and discipline. Last school year the only extra curricular activities were extended day academic support nights.
