Community ratings & reviews

  • (5 years ago)

    In my interaction with the staff it seems that the administration does not comunicate with each other or the teachers or the students

  • (5 years ago)

    i like this school it has a lot of extra activeties like robotics and boxing

  • (6 years ago)

    As a new school in district 8 this school has great potential if only the administration would get its act together. The teachers are very focused on education and would fare better with more support. It's a pity that parents are not more involved in putting their childrens' education first. Remembering that the question must always be how can I help to improve my child and not on playing the blame game.
