The School is a great school with lots of fun activities, and some very Excellent dedicated Teachers. The students come from all background with very good manners. There is one small problem some of the staff that have been in this school for a while, are very mean. and unproffessional. Starting with the Principal,the Guidance Counselor, Parent Coordinator and two School Aide. They all need a Transfer. They will Physically Emotionally, and Verbally ABUSE your chid.
