School Reviews

  • Recommended November 09, 2010 - This school is the worst I have seen to date in the state. With incompetent teachers, principle and staff. How did these people get through high school let alone college to acquire a job educating our children. It's no wonder there is such a drop out rate in Cape Cod. Spare your child the pain and find him or her a private school. - Posted by Parent
