  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on October 24, 2008

  • It was quite a culture shock comming from an A school to this. The children seem to have to much freedom. Authority is laid back in the bulling and fighting department. I feel the communacation is poor. There does not seem to be much postive parent involvement. I am very disappointed and am removing my child from this animal house.
