  • Poor school, the 5 star rating that they claim they have is wrong. Enrollment has dropped a ton. Teachers are ok, (...) is just plain bad and does not care about anything. They do not do enough to punish the problem kids and take it out on the good kids, which in turn makes the parents remove the good kid and place them out of the district. My advice, stay away and look somewhere else.
