The school is great, however the students are not. There is so much bullying even with the new rules and principle. This school will not teac your children with all of the distractions. The teachers will just move on. You either get it or you don't. I do not like this school at all. They could be a great school if they had better students. I would not recommend this school to anyone. There are other close by schools that are way better. Thank you for reading this and please don't send your children here. Thank you!
