  • The school has a nice facility and clean environment, but a very disorganized and apathetic staff. I always feel like programming is slapped together and some of the staff just wants a pay check. Not a big investment in children as far as I can see. Disappointing management of traffic of parents and children coming into school. Many parents have said they feel like an unwanted annoyance.

  • This school is HORRIBLE! The leadership is full of themselves and treat their students poorly. It took 2 weeks to talk to someone over and issue after many phone calls and even going there.
    My child had a horrible time there!!!

  • Very poor principal leadership. No on ground security measures & poor teacher supervision of students. Horrible school & lack of discipline provides a poor learning environment. A student almost knocked me out with a steel door ON PURPOSED! Made eye contact with me and purposely ran into the door to hit me & my disabled daughter! I AM DISGUSTED!
