We recently moved here from NC and our daughter went to a private school. I have to admit not being from the area I was worried to say the least. What a wonderful school! I have had a amazing experience and so has my daughter. Nothing but good things are happening there. I am very pleased with our decision.

I have been a member of The School Advisory Council (SAC) and PTA and I can honestly say that all the principal cares about is the facts and had every excuse in the book for why the school is declining. It's just a fact that ever since ...  Read more

I hate this a previous poster said, all the principal cares about is the fcat results, She pushes off any dealing with parents on the vice principal who is horrible also.

Principle is aloof to the problems and concerns of parents and students in her school. As long as FCAT scores are there she could care less about you. She has consistently ignored fellow parents voicing concerns and even turns and "runs" away as you approach her. Long time parents and staff have all ...  Read more
