School Reviews

5   3/9/2007
This school is way better than Amador. Its not so clique and has a better school enviroment. The kids are very welcoming for the most part. But what I notice the most is that less strict the Teachers and staff are on the kids the more they enjoy school. Coming from Amador its a better cahnge. So I would choose this school over Amador in a heart beat.
