School Reviews

  • Recommended August 20, 2012 - This school is only about who you know, not what they no!! There only concern is getting rid of any child that struggles with the testing, even when they have passing grades. Most of our children in this area drop out, or graduate at the age of 19. There is no summer school for all grades. We need to change the school system. - Posted by Parent
