School Reviews

The school has great programs and overall they could be an excellent school, but, they don't seem to enforce some of their own student codes and they don't have a no tolerance policy. There's a lot of fighting and kids that like to instigate fights with other students they feel are inferior. The school building is brand new and the Principle is really nice, when a problem is brought to the school's attention they act on it. I think though if the school would inform the students that a no tolerance policy is in effect on name calling, student sexual harrassment and fighting among other things this school could be top rated.
