This school is a terrible school. If your child has any type of special needs or behavioral disorders you should forget this school. My son went to this school and the teachers did not do anything to help further my child's education. They did not deal with his problems they would send him to another class room or allowed him to draw all during class. And when it came time for graduation although my son had failing grades they passed him just to get him out of their hair. The teachers are not fulfilling their responsibilities. I would never recomend this school to anyone. Any school would be better than this.
