This is a great School. My oldest daughter was a student here and my youngest daughter will be attending this school in 2 years. The staff and teachers are great at their jobs, they are great people as well. They work very hard to meet the needs of all of their student's and parents.

The faculty turns their back to issues and they ignore reports of bullying. They resolve issues they ignore by sending kids to alternative schools.
