  • I love the school. I'm currently in seventh grade, and I've been here since 3rd grade. The teachers are all so nice, and they're really helpful. Yes, alot of the students are white, but they don't discriminate. We have a girl from Asia [I think she's Japanese or Chinese] in like third or fourth grade. The teachers really help you understand stuff.

  • My child has been here two yrs.They have falsely passed my child to keep their scores up to be a school of excellance.They wont do anything ot help my child and my child is struggling. one half of the teachers are mean, emotionally abusive, non caring, they only treat the children of well liked or established parents good.They are 98% white and do not want minoroties in their school. They treat you like you are not as good as they are and then they do not help your child to excell.
