This school could be alot better. The teachers are great but the acedemic need to be improved. From what Ive heard from my children and by talking to the principal and vice principal. I just dont belive this school is very fit to be one of our great couny's schools.

I went to school here too but things have changed. My son enjoys his teachers but bullying is a big problem. And I agree with the comment that parents are not encouraged to participate.
The academic programs could be better but they are ok. The extracurricular activities need some work. The level of parent involvement is 0 or maybe 1
I am a former product of this school. It was a great environmnet for learning and growing up. The teachers and the administration really cared and definitely put forth the extra effort.
