This school is great! There is a cafeteria, there're clubs that you can go to, and there are resource classrooms that you can take on during school. This is like the best school ever!

I am not happy with this school at all. The communication is poor. There is no a cafeteria available. There is not a web site to see what my kid has for homework while I'm working. The quality of the teaching is also no enough for the average kid.
