It was a good school. Truskowski, Granno and Punteri were batRemoved crazy. Great memories! The top review with the illiterate student needs to be edited.

It would be a good school if the teachers actually showed interest in the well being of the students. Students are often judged and criticized by their race and appearance, by their teachers. Teachers do little to help prevent student injury and fights. Academics are fair, as well of parents involvement.
