  • This is a GREAT school. My nephew is an honor student and has held a GPA 4.5
    There was one thing that caught me by suprise though, I was in the office one morning and there were staff talking about a family out loud, and it was the social worker there from the school. Talking about one of here cases. I was in shock how she is to keep her work privite and not public record. I know she has a boys name. bill or billy, anyway she was telling the office staff about here visit to these peoples house and I had to leave because I really didn't want to know someones bussiness. She should not be doing this. If I found out this was me I would have her fired!! NOT COOL!
