  • This school is not at all as they advertise themselves. High teacher turnover, parent input not allowed or tolerated and they are not equipped to deal with children who have any type of difference - as do most.

  • This school is of mediocre quality - teachers new and inexperienced and teacher turnover is extremely high (over half teachers left last year). Administration and owners don't want input - parents are pushed out of the school when they bring up concerns. The response is that they are just about perfect and nobody has ever complained before (hah! they don't realize that parents talk to each other?). Save your money - lots of better schools in the area.

  • While the extra curricular activities are diverse and plentiful, the staff and administration are inexperienced and of mediocre quality. This school appears to do nothing to reach any kids who fall outside of the mainstream - academics are fair. A typical school environment and a big disappointment. Save your money. Directors are defensive and condescending, parents belittled and shut out.
