i went to this school for about a year in sixth grade. There were nice teachers, and of course the mean ones. I did not like this school.

Mr. Reis, the beginning and intermediate band teacher, is truly awesome! It's amazing what he can teach those kids to do. Very impressed with him. As for PE and core teachers, they're okay, not the best but decent.
