School Reviews

  • Recommended January 04, 2010 - This school offers multiple extracurricular activities as well as music and art. It also offers advanced classes for students if equipped educationally. Facilities are big enough to hold equipment and students. And parents can be involved in everything. With the P.T.A. meetings, its a great way to keep in touch with the school. - Posted by Student/Alumni
