This school is awful at keeping parents informed on your child's progress!!!! My daughter was allowed to go onto high school but not allowed to graduate with her class due to a D in math . So she will not ever remember her 8 th grade graduation this school is very much into the child that school comes easy to but honestly could care less about the child who could really benefit from smaller classroom setting. I DONOT recommend this school at all

This school is not what it used to be. My child was having problems with school and got no help from the teachers and judgement by the head of school. The school is more worried having it easy than helping students learn. The HOS just protects the teachers even when they are not doing the simplest teaching methods and punishing kids for ridiculous infractions. We have moved on and my kid is doing great. We get support from teachers and the principal and they seem to give a dam.
