  • the worst school ever thought of. the kids are very rude and disrespectful and dishonest.students always skipping and always in trouble. p.s. not a reliable school you would want to send your kids to.but if you give it a try it would kinda be ok i guess, because in some parts of southeast it is not good for children to be around misbehavior like that.
