    I rate this school with two and half stars. the reason it is still in the process of building up parents students and teacher moral by implementing extra-curricular activtiy for the students to be more involved with learning.

  • (5 years ago)

    my children have been going to this school for the longest and i am very sadisfied with my with this school.

  • (6 years ago)

    I went to this school when I was younger my father attended this school as well as my nephew and now as a parent my son attended this school. There is no playground for the children to have recess so basically they are just leaning on the school wall or running around the yard playing tag wrestling and even fighting I am not happy about that. Some teachers feel that they have to yell and scream at the students as the only method of teaching and the security team there is lacking in both professionalism and courtesy. I am not some disgruntle person that has a grudge against this school just a concerned parent and I care about my childrens' education.
