School Reviews

Teachers are wonderful and passionate. There seemed to be a huge disconnect between these wonderful teachers and the principal. The principal seemed to care about everyday quality of students experience. He did not respond sufficiently for a request for actions, moving more responsibility to teachers. He is outdated and not compassionate. He only complied when pressed.
