School Reviews

  • Recommended March 28, 2011 - Nothing but trouble for my kid. Big illegal DRUG problem at the school that isn't properly addressed. Had many teachers and administration say they were trained to cover their butts. How is covering your butt in the best interest of our kids?? Very unpleasant experience with the high school!! - Posted by Parent
