It is nice to see that Dr. Cafaro writes such good reviews about his school as well as his self.

I would not recommend sending my child to Georgetown High. The principal and his staff do not put the students of GHS first. The administration of GHS are only concerned with furthering there careers and not helping the students, unless, of course your child can possibly make Dr. Cafaro look good. As for the poor C and D students, good luck trying to find an advocate at GHS.
