  • Excellent school! I went there and teachers are the most caring of any school.
  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on March 02, 2010
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • This school is an absolute JOKE. The staff are all nothing more than over-grown high school bullies. They say what they want and then either hang up on you or walk off while your talking. God forbid you go to the school to have a meeting with any of them - they'll hide.

    There are very few teachers in the school who are worth their weight and maybe SC needs to do with RI did and fire the entire school so they can get it fixed.

    This is the most slap-shot screwed up school in all of Cherokee County. If you can transfer your kids - do it quickly before they end up in this twisted mess any longer!
