This school is not one I would recommend... The school has a terrible drop off and pick up system. The faculty including teachers have interrogated my scholar asking questions that should be addressed only adult to adult. The tardies and absent methods are ridiculously weighed and marked. My scholar receives an abundance of homework...(leave your work at the school/job?) Also not enough physical activity as in most Texas schools, which contributes both to the obesity and dumbness over all, two unappealing attributes this little city and Texas as a state has been nationally recognized as.
