  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on October 27, 2008
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • The school is unfortunately trading on a strong reputation and faculty that no longer reflects the current administration or attitude towards educating its student body. A once strong faculty has been replaced by otherwise marginal educators who serve up information rather than teach. They hide their laziness behing a facade of making students live to college students rather than teaching them how to learn and prepare. The administration endorses and encourages this poor attitude towards education anyone but the gifted student.
