School Reviews

  • Recommended May 01, 2012 - The principal does NOT communicate with concerned parents! He does not help students that are having issues with other students! I''ve tried having a meeting with Mario Re since Nov! Sitting in te office, waiting, doesn''t do any good either! He''s had a few DUI''s as well, but still in charge of students?! Great roll model... This school would be better if Mario Re was gone. I''m not the only parent that feels this way. - Posted by Parent
