School Reviews

This school provides fire training, leadership training, basic education and dicipline. Students are encouraged to achieve,and the staff care about the mission of the school. Situations arise that are less than perfect, generally from adults operating out of self-interest. I would recommend this alternative education to any parent who is interested in participating in their students education.

School looks good from outside, but completly opposite from inside. Tout fire and police training that does not take place. Constant bickering between staff, poorly managed, very self serving school board.
