    We LOVE this school! The teachers work amazingly hard to help the students. They care sbout the kids and it really shows. The principal is amazing we couldn't have anyone who cares more about our kids and does everything in their power to help them succeed!

    This school is great ! Teachers are awesome and really care I dont understand why it gets a 2 ( For this reason I was really hesitant of enrolling my daughter (we live across the street) but I was finding my self driving about 30 miles to and from another school ... Meet the principal take a tour >>> this school is really not bad ... Be involved as a parent and all will be well ... I'm glad we gave them a chance our child is very happy and is doing great just like she was at her charter school ...

    'The Teachers Special Ed & other staff really care about the students and try to help them succeed as much as possible.'

    My daughter attends this school and it has been a nightmare. The disrespect the teachers have for the students is horrible. The office staff and principal are inept to say the least.
