  • I believe they have a very strong leadership base with Mrs Rose Sember as principal. I feel that the education that my daugter is receiving is excellent. The only regret is that the teachers, staff and students are not devoted to supporting all sports events the school has to offer. The school has many outstanding athletes in other sports besides Football.
