School Reviews

5   9/30/2014
Last year the administration was HORRIBLE and I am glad they are gone. This year the school has a new leadership team and they have been great so far. They are very responsive and transparent. I have talked to other parents and they are pleased as well. I believe that this team can turn the school around.
