    Do Not Send your child here...since the staff has changed ...the school has gone down hill...the motivation is gone the grades have dropped...and the new staff members are disgusting. This use to be a model school...now it's just a pure dissapointment.

    This School had always been an amazing school for kids...until this year...The staff that they have now...spend more time torturing the children than anything and its not helping motivate them to want to go to school and do work. This has been the worst year ever at this school. They have destroyed a legacy.
