  • The school is not that good teachers are some times rude and the students there have absolutely no freedom or exercise daily and thats not fair to them best part of school students had were gym now that the new coach left they just exercise and run and students liked it when they got exercise and had fun but overall some of the teachers there were nice and will take the time for your child.

  • This school is great, I been a student for 8 years in Prussing and I learned a lot. The teachers are very patient and caring of their students. The school lunches are also good.

  • This is a great school. The School has great lunches and awsome and freindly teachers. The teachers help you learn and are patiant with the students. It is a neighborhood school so come on.

  • This school sucks! We have basically no freedom rights and no one ever listens to us. The coach is the only good thing about this school. Some of the teachers are ok, though. Otherwise, doesn't teach anything to us students.
