School Reviews

  • Recommended May 24, 2010 - Quality of programs is fair, quality of teachers for the most part are good. Administration lacks. Unless you are the doctor's or lawyer's kids; star football player etc...you are treated differently. Upper officials think too high of themselves. I would not recommend this school to anyone interested in the Dade City area. - Posted by Parent
