  • Do not send kids here. I have had 4 kids in this school. Witnessed New principal sees kids as numbers, not children. pretends to like them to them. Less personal makes decisions easier for staff, they say. Most teachers complain about not having time to take to help students and seldom get grades in on time and kids grades are not always accurate. Only one good guidance counselor and not everyone can have that one. Most staff do not want parental involvement especially if you don't agree with them. Questioning them constitutes intimidation by those being confronted. Not allowed to hold teachers accountable. Emails to teachers may be monitored by principal if he don't like you. everything is his way or no way he says.
