  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on November 19, 2008
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I would not recommend this school to anyone! We sent our son there and have continuously had problems with personal items being stolen, football coaches that don`t give fair playing time to all the players and a school principle that seems to be oblivious to what is going on in his own school most of the time.
