School and academics seem the same as other schools. We did not like the parent shaming and robotic type of environment for our kids. You may doubt yourself. It is me but spoke with another parent who had the same issue. They have their own views on what is appropriate for your child and if yours don't coincide, they will make it known hence the parent shaming. I gave it a 3 because all in all the teachers seem decent as with anywhere else. They have a rigid environment we did not like for our kids. We wanted them to embrace the whole person and their particular situation and personality. It seemed if your situation was not as they wanted or to keep their scores high; you are not welcome. The kids seemed trained like robots. I definitely would not send any child with any kind of special need to them rather physically, emotionally or mentally. They aren't equip to handle any type of diversity. My children seem less anxious now with their new school. I don't want them going to school daily feeling like most people at their jobs. Hating it. They need enjoyment in life. As many parents know, enough stress will come once they are an adult. It is a time to learn but also evolve into their wonderful little personalities. We did not want ours to be uptight, stressed robot types.

Very military friendly. Teachers are fantastic. Staff is extremely caring. PTO is great and open to all suggestions. They are all about creating opportunities for family members. Every year the grades are improving more and more.
