I love the school there are no bully's in it. The teachers are really nice and help kids with special needs. But the iPads, they should only let kids download apps at school or with their teacher's permission. Other than that I love the school!

This school is bad. It has an ongoing bullying problem, including student shaming. No homework regulation, some classes have too much some have none and there is no accountability for late work. They have no concern for the environment in all my time at the school I have seen only two recycle bins. Poor use of budget as they don't put it into education. They give out iPad that the kids' game on all day, and then they ask us to download the same games so our kids can do it at home. The teachers are uninterested in the children beyond the classroom and are often quite rude to family. If you are a minority or special needs, the school is terrible and with the bullying problem it's even worse. This school is bad no matter what the stats say which I have a hard time believing.
