This school has amazing academics. The phenomenal teachers at this school teach the curriculum in a way that the students can understand. They really push their students and want them to get better. Due to the advanced academics, great teachers and staff, and an amazing principal this school is a 5/5.

This could be a good school if more was done about bullying. Staff just brushes things under the rug. They want kids to come to them with problems but when they do they just tell them to go back in line or sit down. They give the excuse that there is 240 kids so they can't watch them all, which would indicate they need more staff. When bullying issues arise nothing is done about the bully. I was actually told "what would you like us to do with them". He will be transferred to a better school with more caring staff, so he can actually learn.
