  • Excellent School. Excellent neighborhood. Very Good support staff. Good teachers. Good parents. Poor Principal. If you like working for an over bearing, egotistical, maniacal, rude boss then this is the place for you. Don't let Michael's smile fool you. Once you go to work for this dictator you are in for hell. He is rude to EVERYONE. Staff, teachers. Even parents. It's his way or the highway. I've heard him say on a number of occasions " Nothing happens here unless I say it does " He yells at everyone. Can wait to retire.
