School Reviews

This school is riddled with unchecked bullies. They do a lot of lip service to "Prevent Bullying" but the teachers do not do anything to stop it--but rather ignore it. Several of the teachers we experienced also lack effective classroom management skills. I would not describe this school as having a good learning environment

My brother goes here for his special needs. The other children are incredibly understanding of him. The teachers have always been great. They have absolutely no tolerance towards bullying. Overall an excellent school.
