  • Not pleased with this school at all!! My child is a freshman and the students totally have control over the teachers. Your child must be very strong to stay on task at a school such as this one. My husband and I are in search of a new school for the remaining years. The children are out of control as many other schools are. I wish that teachers could discipline the children and regain the upper hand. This generation of children will parish for their lack of discipline and instruction!
