I have been going here for years yes sometimes they do good things but I never see respect they only treat their family members good and no one else and they are very cheap when it comes to field trips they get $600 every Friday and can't spend it on the students instead they keep it for their selves I do appreciate staff there but not all staff thank you for respecting my review.

This school is great for immigrants to the US. If your child is an English language learner, this is the place to bring them.
