It was then recommended to my parents to hire a tutor. We could not do this because we barley had enough

I am very disappointed with the school. Kids who are a little behind do not get extra help from the teacher. We had to pay a private tutor to keep my son going.

We absolutely LOVE this school! Both of my boys are so happy and they are doing great. The administration is incredibly organized. The teachers are wonderful, you can tell that they love to teach.

Bullying doesn't even exist and we left our old school(paragon science academy) because my son was getting bullied and nothing was done because the bullies dad was friends with the head of discipline.
