The facilities are nice. The principal and vice principal are quite visible. I cannot say that I like this school. The curriculum is based on the star testing. If your student is in need of any type of help or falls behind in any classes, do not expect any help from the school. The principal and vice prinicipal are most times not available and do not return phone calls. The special education and speech dept. is in the impression that no student will be accepted for help. The academic programs are all based on achieving the highest star testing scores possible without regard to students that may need help cathing up.
