School Reviews

  • Recommended July 01, 2007 - As a student who went to and graduated from this school.... from my opinion it is well run, and has a great environment. Everything s meant to be fun and that is what lives within this school for the most part..Their academic programs are for the most part welll. put. The end of your career at this school is the best because of the great award ceremony...The facilities and classrooms are very clean but are kind of outdated. The parent involvement is amazing everyone chips in and helps so much..... Anonymous 07 - Posted by Student/Alumni
