The school is a bad. Teachers are leaving on the daily. It's just pure mayhem.

I must say to look at the school, it's not much. But once inside you uncover a whole new avenue. A place where you see children wanting to learn, setting goals for themselves. Unaware of the potential they have. I see students as our future and love that my son is having this learning experience here.
