  • I have 2 children attending this school and I can say without a doubt that the teachers really care about the educational success of their students. Mr. Cassimere and now Mr. Campbell are awesome principles and all of the teachers that I have worked with from 10th grade to 12th grade are amazing. Thank you all for being so AWESOME.
