School Reviews

  • Recommended December 19, 2014 - Teachers and administrative staff alike are complacent and lackadaisical at times. They are prejudice and give preferrence to people they know and do not motivate minority kids. They will chance your child's class schedule to how they think the child "can/ should function" because it is more convenient not wanting to deal with them. - Posted by Parent
