  • My son's teachers are excellent. They're his great motivators inorder to study hard in his lessons and work hard independently with his assignment. He likes teachers, the activities. Of course, good behavior and practice starts at home and I'm glad that the teachers reinforce and commends good qualities in them. The only bad thing is that there are students that act like brats, my son thinks there are bullies in the school and kids are not carefully monitored during their play time. When I come to pick up my son, I can see parents competing against each other with their clothes, shoes, etc. Awful!!

  • Yes the school had a great learning system, but sadly the students are not as excellent but are slackers. Also the school is on a low budget.

  • This school is poor, the faculty sucks (with a few exceptions), etc.

    For our field trips we have to WALK to the movie theater and PAY for the movie (which has no educational merit).
