School Reviews

I love this school so much. It has helped my child in so many ways I have no idea what this parent is talking about. Nowhere in the school is there pornography, and if there were that I haven't seen I am sure they would totally do something about it. I recommend this school fr lots and lots of children and teens. Please check the school out yourself, and you will see. I PROMISE. Thanks.

This school does not notify parents of childrens problems until it is too late to fix anything. They put the "bad" kids into programs set up to fail. The language as you walk down the hall is horrible with no teacher involvement. The clothing is torn and dirty on many kids with teachers not caring. Not to mention some of the actions were to say the least pornographic.
