School Reviews

I like the principal of this school. My child needs structure and whenever I had problem with some kids bullying my child, it was taken care of. My child feels more safe at this school then others she has been at.

The principal does NOT communicate with concerned parents! He does not help students that are having issues with other students! I''ve tried having a meeting with Mario Re since Nov! Sitting in te office, waiting, doesn''t do any good either! He''s had a few DUI''s as well, but still in charge of students?! Great roll model... This school would be better if Mario Re was gone. I''m not the only parent that feels this way.
