    This school is a great school. Even though the administration isn't as great there is alot of school spirit the teachers really care about thier studrnts. My child is really close friends with all of his teachers! Now if your child is a trouble maker yeah you might have some problems with the teachers but the teachers care for them any way. This is a great school!
