  • Recommended June 01, 2012 - i am a grandparent and i care for my grandchildren in this year all will be in school full time and i am looking to do volunteer work of any kind and wanted to inquire if the school had a need for volunteers for whatever is needed - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended January 25, 2011 - Very poor educational system. The elementary, middle, and high school teacher do not like to see success in their students. Also, they try to do anything to mess with the child's family life. Terrible schools. Not suggested. - Posted by Student/Alumni
