    Our son who has autism was bullied at this school. We made arrangements to cyber school then decided to give the school another try the second day back he was bullied again and this time hit by one of two "normal" kids. I would not send my child to this school. It's rough. The teachers are nice but this district has cut staff and the class sizes are not conducive to learning. Bottom of the barrel in my opinion.

    teachers in that school can only do so little. they never teach the students who choose to act up a lesson. the principal also just suspends the student(s) who cause trouble this school is mess

    This school is very educationally organized and is a great place for people to lean while being in a safe community. (enviroment)
