School Reviews

  • Recommended March 16, 2012 - I used to attend this school. The teachers are awesome! My favorite teacher was Mr.B as he taught me a lot and if it wasn't for him insisting on me doing my work I never would have gotten where I am today. I give this school a 10 out of 10. Its an awesome school and any kid is lucky to attend. Its small and easy for one on one teaching if you need it. - Posted by Student/Alumni
