This school is petty and more interested in bossing everyone around rather than what is best for parents and students. My child currently goes to this school and in my opinion, this is the worst school I have been involved in. The school principal is more worried about liability than what is good for the kids who attend. #1 Apparently they were sued over 5 years ago because a kid was injured on the playground so NOW no parents are allowed to utilize the playground or soccer field in the morning before school nor after school. Last year My son and I went to school early every morning to practice soccer and spend time together without any problems. The new principal Erin McMillan has effectively put a stop to all activities from parents with attending kids. I tried to go early to spend time with my son on the soccer fields and have been escorted off the field and told I was not allowed to be there before during or after school due to liability issues. Instead of working with us and figuring out a way for us and others to spend time with our kids enjoying the school and its facilities before and after school She instead had us escorted off the field and threatened us with the on-staff officer Instead of working toward a solution like signing a waiver she and her governing board apparently DON''T CARE ABOUT WHAT THE ATTENDING PARENTS WANT.
LITERALLY, hell on earth, don't send your kids here. If you love them you would stay, far, far, away. Teachers are petty and rude. Very detrimental to my mental health.
I went to this school for 9 years and I regret it. Please don't ever send your kid through this school. They care more about numbers and statistics than the student. Do not send your kid here. I am not exaggerating. I am about to graduate high school and this school is the biggest waste of time.
Think twice before sending your kids here! Administration, staff not very involved or concerned for individual childrens needs. curriculum wonderful, location fine, Overall feel no community or support for anyone outside of the circle formed by the administrators...
