School Reviews

  • Recommended February 28, 2014 - I've been going to this school for 12 years now and I absolutely love it! I wouldn't change anything. This school has it's ups and downs just like every other school, but I guarantee we have the most school spirit. Let's Go, Wildcats! - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended May 09, 2011 - Teachers are not focused on ensuring that your child learns the material they present in the class. They become frustrated when a student asks them to clarify information that was not presented clearly. The school system is also not interested in working with students that are advanced beyond their age level grade. - Posted by Parent
