A good school, even now as a high school student from across the street it reminds me of the great teachers, classmates, and memories I made. My younger siblings now go here, and it's nice to know they're good students in a good atmosphere.

Very disappointing school. Children are permitted to swear in the classroom and are dangerously physically violent to other students. Very concerned and would recommend parents choose wisely if considering sending their child to this school.
