this school is like others in the area,it favors certain children over others,teachers are lazy and just want to be paid.was that way when i was there and is that way now that my children go there.better off sending your kids to private school or home schooling.

This School is a decent School however, some of the Teacher's seem to be there for a pay check and not truly there because they care about the students learning something. My child has been there for two years and has had a few problems with at least three Teacher's. The Office Staff ALWAYS points any fault or wrong doing back towards the children and will not take their blame on any subject (if any Problems)In all though its a very nice School. You do have to kiss some rear~end to be favored.
