I believe this is a very good school with teachers who care for and are committed to the students and their education. Even with an absence or a low score on tests, I was contacted by the teachers. Principal White is very involved and was very hands on and approachable. She was also open to suggestions. The students need to care about their education and parents need to be more involved and work in unison with the school. The Principal and faculty/staff should be commended for their hard work. Keep up the good work!
