    This school has helped my child work through a difficult time in thier life and has been a great resource of education. My child has benefitted by being a member of this institution.

    This school is quite possibly the worst school I've ever had to deal with. The teachers are of poor quality and the administration is indifferent. I am sorry my children have had to deal with them.
