Overall this is a good school. There's been a few teachers that shouldn't be teaching children in my opinion, but both of my children have seemed to do very well. The administration seems to be very professional and not one sided, so for that I'm happy. Both of my children have had problems with bullies but I guess that's everywhere. Overall it's a good school.
