This school turned my child into a drug addict. There are too many kids there, the teachers are uneducated, the principal is very rude. If you need to speak to any authority, they will ignore you until you bring any legal action into it. There is no structure to this school. DO NOT send your kid there.

This school is awful!!! I have children in this school and there is entirely too many children! The numbers are not accurate on this website there are over 4000 children in this school. There is no one winging out the children that do not belong there. The children that do belong there are being slighted. The principal(Ms. Carroll) has little to no communication with parents. You cant even meet with her if you needed to. The secretary will NOT answer the phone you have to call at least 4 times and she will let the phone ring off the hook. Mr. Gill( Director of SLC) is the most ignorant man on the face of the earth! PLEASE DO YOUR HOMEWORK ON THIS SCHOOL BEFORE HAVING YOUR CHILD ATTEND!!!
