School Reviews

My daughter went to this school in 6th grade. It seemed like a good school. Skip ahead a few years, my son is now there and I would do anything to get him out. He is treated like a number, not an individual child. It is very sad. I have seen no enthusiasm or loved for children or education at all in this school this year. If you are tired of doing this or don't love it, you shouldn't be doing it.
