School Reviews

  • Recommended February 06, 2011 - This school is severely lacking in nearly every way imaginable. The quality of teachers is poor at best. The facilities are abysmally terrible, and undoubtedly the worst i have ever seen. And heaven help you if you ever need to contact any of the staff or faculty, because the chances of them returning your call, no matter its importance, are slim to none. - Posted by Parent
