To be quite frank I summarize this school as disorganized and overall just a failure. The staff (mainly administration) abuse power over students by taking devices and searching through them (with no legal rights whatsoever) accessing social media accounts and private texts. I would have sued but I didn''t have the money for an attorney, and my parents didn''t want to deal with a legal battle with the school. All events are disorganized and mostly tossed together, and fall apart quickly. Also, the teaching there is pretty low effort and is pretty much all fill out this packet with no actual education going on.

I've had 1 child graduate from this school and 1 child that is in 9th grade at this time. The child that graduated, barley graduated. He got "help" from some of the teachers, but no one ever took the time to figure out what was wrong with my son. He had a really hard time getting homework done. He knew what was taught, he did great on tests, but did awful on homework, he's a smart boy, just not motivated to get the work done. We struggled all through school, the teachers mostly liked my son, but no one was there to help. Total failure! My daughter has talked to me a lot more about how the teachers treat the students. I'm totally appalled! We do have a "no bulling" rule, it should apply to the teachers, also. I also feel that if there was ever time where the students get their work done or an end of a trimester, or just before a holiday, the teachers all through every school and every year tend to have the students watch movies. I've found that some of the movies are not appropriate for the students ages. Totally unacceptable!
