    If it weren't for the awesome teacher my son had last year I would give this school a one star rating. They make no effort to help special needs students and I have never encountered a more disinterested uncaring principal in all of the years of my kids being in school. We pulled him out and put him in a private school and it was the best decision we could have ever made. This school may be great if your kids have no special needs but if you have any behavioral issues forget it.
