  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on October 12, 2008
  • Rating: 3 (3 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • The principal is incredible with the students, teaching and exemplifying good morals and behaviors. Most of the teachers are very good with students. One teacher however, does not believe in giving A's so that does leave students with no incentive to do well. I think the school's rating depends on the teacher the child gets and the cooperation of the parents
