    A lot is changing about this school. The principal her staff and all the teachers are working so hard for their students' success!!!

  • (5 years ago)

    The children in this school are way out of control and are not well behave. I believe that the teachers especially the principal should be more strict.

    This school has poor grades i feel that the teachers can do way better than what they are doing. I also have a problem with their behavior i feel the principal can be more strict!
