School Reviews

  • Recommended September 26, 2007 - The school has great programs and overall they could be an excellent school, but, they don't seem to enforce some of their own student codes and they don't have a no tolerance policy. There's a lot of fighting and kids that like to instigate fights with other students they feel are inferior. The school building is brand new and the Principle is really nice, when a problem is brought to the school's attention they act on it. I think though if the school would inform the students that a no tolerance policy is in effect on name calling, student sexual harrassment and fighting among other things this school could be top rated. - Posted by Student/Alumni
