  • Why does this school need 1 principle and 2 asst priciples for 3 grades.
    Thats unnecessary. Waste of tax payers money.

  • I agree there is too much drama going on there. The principal nor the teachers are doing anything about the BULLYING!!!
    The student that is being pick on is the one punished. There have been two students within two weeks removed because of that.

  • This school is so slow. And the teachers are dumb. We learn the same stuff each grade. Too much drama fights teachers not liking one another.I would never recommend this school to anyone. Plus its right their by the projects so you know somethings wrong with it!!!!
