School Reviews

2   5/17/2016
It would be extremely difficult to find anything to justify the stated mission of educating "every student for maximum academic and personal growth" in this school's achievements. There is no interest or incentive for STEM-oriented activities and enrichment programs. The academic clubs or contests are nonexistent. There is no comprehension with regards to diversity or thinking outside the box.
