I think that this school is not a very good school, due to very harsh punishments for children who don't do ver bad things such as if you were to push someone in the halls as a joke they would suspend you for, about 5-10 days. I beleive that is way to much. The quality of there academic programs charge way too much like $100 that's just a pay-to-play. Then when you go and get your physical you have to pay alot of money.......... Everything about this school is very bad in my opinion..........
