  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on April 23, 2010
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I did my student teaching here and was supported by a staff of well educated and caring individuals. I learned something from most of the staff. As far as their relationships with the students they were caring, nurturing, and fair. The students were well behaved with the occasional small issue but overall they were there to learn. I would recommend this school to anyone.
