School Reviews

  • Recommended July 27, 2013 - I went to school hear for two and a half years. Things started to slowly get better but there is still room for improvement. Many of the children are very disrespectful and do not listen to an authority figure. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended May 16, 2011 - Coaches don;t have confidence in their players. Teacher's aren't teaching. They just print off worksheets all the time, and call that teaching. Principle doesn't do her job well. - Posted by Student/Alumni
