  • My daughter seems to love the school. She is involved in a number of activities, has challenging homework and has homework most every night. She has more friends than she has had since she has been in school. The teachers are very attentive and contact parents via email often.

    As parents we have been very satisfied at parent-teacher conferences and at any assistance from the councilors and administrators.

  • Too much homework, teachers get too mean, and most of all, the phases on how they act and how they assume YOU did somehting bad!

  • A lot of the teachers are biased... You know, set in their ways. The administration is totally disrespectful... and their personalities are absolutely fake. I didn't enjoy my time there. Also, there is barley any homework, and a lot of students don't try.
