Academically Aexander is ok. However, they have severe discipline problems with horrific fights and gang initiations. The staff knows and continues to let these delinquents terrorize the students and disrupt class. We are about to pull out our child because 3 of 4 classes are interupted daily with violent aggressive behavior by these thugs.
