School Reviews

  • Recommended November 09, 2010 - This school is a joke. They say they need more communication with parents, but they never call you back or email back. The busses are even worse, my child has been left at the side of the road in an area of town that we do not live. She has been left at school because transportation did not have enough room on the bus. Avoid this back woods mismanaged school. Your kids will be smarter for it...... - Posted by Parent
