School Reviews

If I could give this school no stars, I would. I have a 6th grader, who has always had great compliments from teachers. Always polite, respectful, and kind, no problems with kids or teachers. Child has IEP, and still no growth at this school. My child sees fighting weekly, bullying, and should not feel like he can't talk to anyone or keep his head down to avoid any problems, but kiddo does. I have actually had a teacher tell me that unfortunately, because your child doesn't cause problems, and he is so busy with the problematic kids, he doesn't talk to my child as much. Now that makes ya feel good about putting a child in this school, doesn't it? NOT!! Somehow this school needs to figure a way to get a grip on the kids here! I do feel bad and totally respect the teachers, but something has to be done about this school. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN TO THIS SCHOOL!!! Also, if you have a child that has an IEP, you might want to consider another school that can give a child with special needs more attention!!!
