School lacks help with medical adjustments. Teachers are unprofessional and administration lacks communication and help.

Worst school in the world. Nothing but a bunch of liars hope this school gets burned to down. All they do is make up things because they believe it will improve the school. I recommend everyone not to come to this school ever again. And if you see one of the staff, punch them in the face.
