  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on March 09, 2010
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • The school is very disorganized. The administrators have cheated on standardized states to make the school meet its AYP. There is a storng family based atmosphere. The staff involvement is excellent. The homework load is not challenging enough. and not consistent. There is no cohesiveness among principal and staff. The principal lacks professionalism and has poor communication skills involving staff, community, students and parents.
