Its a small school where everyone knows everyone else. This is nice in one way but not in another. After having foster kids and my own kids attend the school I have found the teachers and administration to be sorely lacking. They have no ability to accommodate special needs or circumstances. There is one way of doing things and thats it. I am very disappointed in my experiences here and worst of all, my kids suffered for it.
