School Reviews

The quality of academic programs at this school are low. They lack resources that need to be used in order to promote reading. They don't have a library. My kids just sit and do work during their library time. I am very unhappy with the way the school is run. There are no extra curricular activities. Some are scheduled on the calendar, but sometimes fall through. The facilities are not student-in-mind designed. The level of parental involvement is high, but mostly because it is required for reach child.
