  • My son is graduating from this school this year and had a great experience while attending. Some of the teachers were a bit stern but I wouldn't have had it any other way. He received a great education and made many friends. Thank you Cherry Avenue on a job well done!

  • I went to this school a LONG while back (10 years ago now). School is tough for students at this age, it's kind of those 'weird years'. Of course there's going to be fights and weird things of the sort. I had a share myself. However, to me, this school was fantastic. The teachers are mean because they want to push their students. If it was NOT for this school, I would not have become the scientist I am today (thank you Mr. Morris / Mrs. Caetano).

  • I am taking my children out of this school as soon as possible. My son Gabriel came home with a black eye! When I went to speak with the principal, the inncident was just bruched off like it never happened! I am glad I was never put in such a school. My children Gabriel, 12, and Allison, 13, will be moving to Live Oak right away. It's closer, and God let it be safer.
