School Reviews

  • Recommended September 23, 2014 - I have no problem with my daughter at this school and we came from out of stare. Keep on mind that sometimes it can be the student themselves that could be causing the issue look into it more before digging on the school and remember the student have to learn to solve the problems themselves also, you wont be there when they are out on the real world. But do bare in mind every situation is not the same. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended May 12, 2014 - Horrible school came from another area not in the click of the Teacher/Parents that grew up together in their little town of China Grove. My son was bullied all year long until we move him to another school. Not much help from the teachers or coaches was told my son was making it up until other students got involed and spoke up for my son. I hope no other kids go through what my son went though at that school. - Posted by Parent
