My child is new to this school. I have found the staff to be non communicative, rude, and incompetent so far. I am always willing to give people a chance. I hope it gets better.

This is the worst school i have ever seen. It gives me chills to think that I entrusted my child to them. Bullying is rampant and the teachers and administrators are so incompetent nothing is done. oh yeah, they did take great pains to blame the victim.
