    This is bad school to send your children to. Students are disrespecful uneducated by their parents. Theachers are good but to no use for the behavior of students will ruin your child. My son goes to this school and every day he is complainig of misstreatment by his classmates.

    This is an excellent school to send your children. I graduated form that school in 2003. I learned alot of things that can help me relate to the real world. The teachers care about their students alot and will help them when it is needed. The area is not that good but overall the school is excellent.
