Community ratings & reviews

  • (6 years ago)

    This school is very small. Classroom numbers are small.Classroom teachers are all master teachers. Most all have ma+ degrees. The atmosphere is like that of a small private school. Because it is old most believe it to be poor but they have made good scores on their state mandated tests.
