My children attend this school, and I have nothing but positive things to say about the school. The teachers are caring and dedicated. Extra-curricular activity are many and the kids enjoy them, especially the drama and Renaissance clubs.

Fights break out often and students are more often disobedient and disrespectful toward teachers and faculty. Never sub and never be a teacher there.

Teachers are stifled. They cannot be creative in their teaching methods thanks to school leadership.
