School Reviews

  • Recommended September 18, 2014 - This school is an absolute mess, as a past student who has dealt with the staff and peers alike this school is not worth sending your child to. The staff does not care about your children and their safety. I am friends with a few students who are bullied on a daily basis, they have received physical threats from the student and the staff does absolutely nothing about it. If i was a parent that has thoughts of sending their children to this school, i would highly rethink it. home school your children parents. - Posted by Student/Alumni
