Regular education at this school is good. If your child needs any type of special ed service, this school is not a good choice.

The administer Mrs. Yvonne Jacquez is very helpful. She is very nice to everyone. This is the first year my daughter come to this school transfer from another school. The teacher here are great. Fallon front desk has a attitude. Helpless!
