School Reviews

  • Recommended May 23, 2011 - Although being a public school, many classes have a religious based curriculum without taking into account the many different beliefs present in the school. They leave the children feeling incompetent and scared to attend classes. Many of the staff themselves take sides during student involvement. They openly call the students stupid and liars. They refuse to involve parents in any of the day-to-day issues. They insist on treating 12 and 13 year old children as adults capable of making life decisions on their own but then punish them when parents fail to sign or return material. Staff is uncooperative and rude to parents and caregivers. Many complaints by parents not only go unresolved but the students are the ones to pay the price in detention and suspension. Student belongings are not secure, with some students being singled out to have locker and bag searches with no valid reason. Not only would I NOT recommend this school, I would openly advocate for home schooling if there are no alternatives. - Posted by Parent
