if you actually went there for a while, it wasn't all that bad honestly. i haven't had many bad experiences there. the good experiences DEFINITELY outweigh the bad. overall I really recommend the place. WAY better than the school across the street. the teachers there are nice, and they are good at their jobs, (speaking from a 98-100s average student, as you can see they taught me very well) and the other students there are nice. I would say in a grade there are 2-3 bullies but they are very MILD insults and honestly, just ignore them and they won't do it. and the food is edible, but sometimes it isn't the best. most of the time it's okay though. if you live near and have children that are from grades pre-k through 8, they should absolutely attend.

This school has a lot of problems with communications, teachers are super bossy with no respect. They scream talk to a parent very unprofessional; I had situations where a teacher would make up a story, I'm very concerned about this school. I hope someone will do some kind of internal investigation. Regardless who you speak you will receive a call from same people. -0 rate
