  • Well, sad to say.. I have had more issue's with this school than good! Definately needs a new Principal/management.Has some great teachers,some need to be reveiwed. Students need to be taught properly and not passed if not learning. Get help, when need help and where help is needed. This school is slacking on teaching our kids, passing them without the knowledge they need and deserve. Education is important and our kids are our future. Why send them to school if they will not learn properly,or don't have too! Don't teach our kids to be lazy, teach them to be all they can be and to work hard!

  • This school was a great school two years ago. There are a group of teachers in the lower school who are crude, mean and nasty. Their presence in the school has radically lowered standards and the overall tone of the place. I'm sad about it, but definitely sending my children back next year.
