  • I Attended This School In 2003 And I Have To Say It Wasn't A Good Expierience At All. I Was Bullied So Much Here And Worst Of All I Had Dealt With The Meanest Teacher Of All In The School But I Think She Dosent Work There Anymore At All And She Does Not Need To Be Working There At All And In Fact Most Teachers & Staff Members Dont Need To Be Working There At All. Mean Horrible Faculty But Mrs. Thrower And Mrs. Bull Were Nice Administrators.

  • I Went To This School A Long Time Ago And Have To Say That It Was A Mixture Of Good And Bad. The Good Part Is That I Had Friends Who Loved Me And Truly Cared About Along With A Very Respectful Teacher Named Mrs. Kennedy And With A Very Nice Bus Driver And A Assistant Driver As Well But The Bad News Is That When I Got Pulled Out Of Mrs. Kennedy's Class (...) And Thats When The Ugly Begun And Then I Started To Hate The School. So Bad Did These Things Occur That My Mom Has Had To Pick Me Up From School A Fews Times And Wasnt Mad At Me At All. Just The School. I Am So Glad I Left The School. Mean & Rude Staff But I Loved One Staff. Glad Im Out Of There.

  • My daughter's teacher forgets to send important things home. My sister in law is bullied all the time. They require uniforms on picture day. Its a mess.
