School Reviews

  • Recommended August 20, 2012 - I loved going there from 1985-1986, then I graduated from this school on Friday, June 13th, 1986 with 116 of my fellow classmates; most of whom became friends with me the short time I was there. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended October 12, 2006 - Academicly the school is lacking. Our scores are below average. Parent involvement is high, given that we are constantly being put in a position to defend our childrens rights. The superindent would rather fight for new buildings then put money into teaching our children life skills so they can succeed in life. Our scores are declining even though we now have a state of the art building for grades k-6. - Posted by Parent
