This school is horrible. Hasn't updated their school website in 2 years. Whenever you want to know about an event or calendar, they just tell you to check Facebook... I don't have a Facebook so I guess I can't be involved. No real circular activities for the kids. Low test scores, teachers are not even friendly.
