  • this is an average school. you don't get the christian education in other schools. they are friendly here. some of the stuff the other person wrote is true but they are doing their best.

  • This school has mushrooms growing in the cafeteria and has a lot of bugs in the cafeteria and classrooms. The heater is always broken so it is always cold. And even though they say they have air conditioning they never run it. Some of the classrooms have mold growing on the ceiling. There has been two dead rotting mice in the kitchen. They are an expensive school because you do so many fundraisers and they ask for money, but they spend the money on things we don't need. The curriculum is grade school material because i had learned it when i was in junior high. Some of the teachers are uncredited. The school that i go to now, is better and cheaper. these are some of the reasons why i left.
