School Reviews

  • Recommended August 21, 2014 - It is difficult for me to understand why this school has tattered and sun bleached flags hanging on its flagpole. This is the first day of school. If you want your students to have pride in their school and themselves, I recommend you demonstrate the same pride. Buy new flags immediately! - Posted by Parent
