School Reviews

  • Recommended November 28, 2008 - The programs are behind the times and do not prepare our children for college, there is little to no aid for students and the staff seems to care more for sports than the academic well-being of the students. There is little to no involvement of parents and the administration does notify parents of conference dates - Posted by Parent
