School Reviews

1  5/13/2017
I have one child currently attending this school and find the curriculum adequate. However the environment is hostile and bullying is rampant, during lunch periods, while class is in session and even during passing time between classes. I will definitely be seeking a better education school. I will never recommend this school based on talking to several students from this school.
