  • Faculty is terrible. Don't help kids learn if they aren't as fast paced as the others. Math department is probably the biggest weakness besides the Vice Principle. The sign out front that says excellence in education is not true at all. If you are good at sports this is the place to go. If you are not a sports person for this school they could care less about you.

  • Nice school but bad edu program. If you kid has trouble learning then they don't care they let them fall behind and let you know nothing can be done 2 months before the end of school. First grade teachers are suppose to know how to teach, this one was a burn out from the public schools system. Nice campus, but they are not set up for kids who are not top notch fast learners.

  • I have two things. Number One, you should do something worse than just give detentions to a lot of the kids. The second thing is I think we should get more time before school. I mean when you have two little siblings and yourself (especially teens) to get ready in the morning it gets hard. Then you have to drop one of them of at the elementary school, and then you're almost tardy.
