A. Academic programs are excellent, but that is part of the problem. All they seem to care about is numbers on paper, not the child. Its a shame really. B.Availability of the arts is wonderful. C.Academic awards are terrible in this school as they don't even offer the honor roll for good students and have no basis for their grading system. Its graded 1-4 1 being does not meet the standard through 4 which is exceeds the standard. My son is in advanced reading and he only got a 2- progressing towards the standard. D. Facilities are so-so. Not great,almost sterile in nature. E. Parental involvement is just not there at all. They are not warm or friendly or willing to work with you or your children. Over all I would say its one of the worst schools I have ever been a part of. I am in the process of pulling my son out as we speak.
