School Reviews

While this school has a great art class and library, this school lacks focus on the students. Kids are often passed over and not made to achieve success in school. I feel that it cannot meet it's educational responsiblities due to lack of funding. My son attended here and was never given a single book for any class. They had about 30 class books per room that was shared among all the students, this prevents kids from taking the books home to study. I could not help my student study due to lack of study materials. I think this could be a great school with support from the community.
