School Reviews

There are some great teachers here but, I would not recommend this school as it does not treat students or parents with any respect. The quality of the actual education COULD be there but it is lost amidst the chronic chaos and negativity that reigns here. The students are expected to be fully accountable for their conduct while the staff is not. It is a poorly run school with an apathetic staff and it is the kids who suffer the most. This district has a revolving door of Principals and Superintendents over several years which is never a good sign.
