This is by far the worst school I have ever dealt with. The staff is constantly quitting, the school counselor is rude and unhelpful. If your child needs any form of help with a subject good luck getting that. The teachers rarely if at all respond to your emails. This school is all around awful. I would give this school zero stars if that was an option.
