My first impression of this school is that they seem disorganized. The ladies in the front office are not very friendly. Especially one seems to not like her job! It is now taking 3 days for them to enroll my child into school because their registrar is sick. What school only has one person who knows how to enroll a child into school? I just did not get a good vibe of this school. My son came from an alternative school and I was extremely pleased with the staff and effort of his previous school. Hopefully the experience with this school gets better. Just a side note, the one review on this school was a 5 star but I believe it was suppose to 1 star or zero stars.

Quality of academic is weak. School is too violent. The Principal is not supportive of students who reports bullying.
