    School is okay. Environment is great. Teaches are very sweet . As far as curriculum goes this school is so behind if compared to other states. There is no discrimination like some people said .

    My daughter starts beach tomarrow. I really hope she is treated equally and is not overlooked cause we aren't rich people. I tell you now if she is that's discrimination and I WILL NOT tolerate it.

    This school is wonderful for perfect kids with money. If your child is poor or a little imperfect I would suggest you take the principal's advice and take your child to another school.
