    My step- daughter has gone to this school for the past two years she loves it.. They really care for your children.. Love the Teachers!!!

    The school was great for my daughter but my son is having a few more problems. He is special needs as he has dyslexia. I don't think they have enough specialized training to help him the way he needs to be helped. This is not the schools fault at all but the state's lack of funding to the school. Education needs to be our country's first priority but it is not getting hte attention it deserves.
