This school is a joke. I've served this country for a long time there is not anything military about this place. My daughter was a straight A student until she attended this school. The teacher do not even try to reach out to the parents after the parents try to get a hold of the. You can forget about trying to talk to the principal. The sports program is a joke as well. DO NOT SEND YOUR KID THERE

This school is a JOKE. The "sports" teams are beyond poorly organized. They never have anything together. The teachers do not communicate anything to the parents. Honestly, this place is PATHETIC. I am yanking my students from this school and will send them elsewhere next year. If you can opt out of sending your children to this dump please do so. This school has the nerve to identify itself as a leadership school however, they only thing they have done is use the same outdated and poorly received teaching methods while they force the kids to wear uniforms. While I have nothing against uniforms, there is more to teaching leaders than making all the kids dress the same. The grounds of this school are filthy, old and falling apart. How can they possibly expect any student to take pride in a school that clearly takes no pride in itself?
