I would not recommend this school to any parent who has a child in need of special education services or who may have disabilities. The staff at this school seem more concerned with ridding themselves of the problematic child than helping them, it's really unfortunate. The quality of academics at this school also have need for improvement. The test scores for the school speak for themselves.
