School Reviews

2   12/27/2018
My child often informs me of fights that are going to happen or that happen at this school. The school is not what it used to be. Before I would recommend this school to others, but now I double think if I should even enroll my children into this school. The students and parents should have a voice in all choices affecting our students and ourselves as parents.
