  • this school caters to and recognizes only the accomplishments of the academically gifted children. Very little if anything is done to encourage, educate, and meet the needs of all other children. The school administrators are most concerned about scored than the actual needs of the children. If children don't learn teachers and administrators should not be employed there. More work/homework is not better if the children are not learning from the multitude of papers being shoved at them. My rating if 1 is more than this school deserves. Will my child be punished for my comments, I will be watching closely.

  • As a school for special needs children they offer good social activities.
    But one thing I have a problem with is the lack of communication they have for the parents.
