  • the majority of the staff seem distant and uncaring. they do not give any warmth or welcome to parents or students. Maybe because I'm white and my children are African American but whatever the reason it is not good. My sons have attended this school for 5 yrs. they both are in talented and gifted and make exceptional grades. They complain the other students are mean to them because of their abilities and the staff refuses to do anything about it. The bathrooms there are very unsanitary. no tissue, no soap, no towels. ever. why do we teach our children to wash their hands and then leave them to this? You very seldom hear of the good the students do but the bad is publicized ten fold. I would say the school and the staff have ample room for improvement.
