This school has been beyond disappointing, some of the teachers have been great, the administrators, not so much. If you have a serious problem, you get put on hold or they never return your phone calls. There is quite an epidemic with bullying, that does not get fully addressed. The lack of concern for your child`s wellbeing is horrible!

Administration is the worst, lack of communication from teacher to parent. VERY close minded, no concern for the students well being....they do not follow their mission statement.
