I have two children that attend all three years in this school, and during this time i had no problems, teacher to parent communication was exceptional. over all academic achievements were above average compare to many other city schools. and as far for children behaviors and problems i can honestly say that is was minimal. but this school does need a better extracurricular activity program.

The Acedemic programs are farely well, the availabilty of extracurricular activities is rather scarce. If you are applying your child to the school say in the middle of the year your child would have to go to a specific class depending on room and there is no choice. The school is bad, kids are wild, and uncontrolable. Also there are teachers that have no control over the class.
