  • this school has losey communication beween teacher and parent . they do not allow parents at volenteer for school functions untill a clearance form compleated, however they never issued one. The band teacher however is amazing. My daughter want from an A student to a D student and often cries after coming home saying she hates her school. I would not recomend this school.
