    This is a bottom of the barrel school the worst of the worst. There are weekly and sometimes daily fights. The school punishes kids by shortening their lunch time when kids talk during lunch. This effects all the kids in the class not just the one who was talking. Academically this school is failing its students and the community. They continue to pass children who aren't making the grade and aren't meeting the minimum requirements for their grade level. My child was in the school for over 5 months before they realized that he has an IEP. They did nothing to support him with his IEP the principal was never there. The staff is rude and disrespectful. The few good teachers have no resources and no authority to do anything including teach. This school is a train wreck and I would never send my child back here. This year was the worst experience for our family. The school had bomb threats towards the end of the school year and my child had to call me. The school never calls parents and there was no memo sent home about the bomb threats. If you have good kids who just need help learning stay far away from this school. They ignore good kids in favor of trouble makers.

    Don't bring your child to this school. The owners Dr. Lightner and Dr. Wright are only there to make money and open other schools. They don't care about the teachers or the kids.

    Bad school...I had to take my child out of the school. There is no discipline and my son was basically shunned by administration. The directors are rude and unprofessional.
