  • THIS SCHOOL IS THE WORST. YOU LEAVE MESSAGES AND NOTHING GETS RETURNED. I DON'T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I SPOKE TO MY SON'S GUIDANCE COUNSELOR. THE PARENT COORDINATOR IS ONLY HELPFUL WHEN YOU ARE IN HER FACE. I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL MY SON GETS OUT OF THIS RAT TRAP. THEY PROMISE YOU IN THE BEGINNING HOW YOU CAN DO THIS AND THAT AND WHEN YOU TRY TO GET IN CONTACT WITH THIS SCHOOL YOU CANT.

  • When we first came to this school we were told how the teachers are there for you and all that. I have called this school on many occassions and have not gotten a response I called the Parent Coordinator and left several messages and no return call yet. I am so disgusted with this school when my son finishes I will be glad. They give out the wrong email addresses for the teachers no one corrected it as of yet. I have called and left messages witht the guidance counselor and nothing this school is a mess
