School Reviews

very bias school with a few teachers that need to be replaced because they are not acting mature enough to teach all the students in a proper manner and find sport in picking on some in stead of helping same,childish

The amount of opportunities is great for all students here. The teachers are helpful and kind. We have a state-of-the-art building, including our sports facility and a new indoor pool. Our parents all work together through the Red and Black Booster Club.
