I'm a student here and i don't know why parents are saying that its really bad in this school because they don't even go to the school and don't know what's going on.

Unfortunately, I must agree with the other reviews. The principle and teachers do not care about the students. It is a job to them versus a career. Their dedication level is poor. I often see the principle out a bars trying to find a date. The principle's emphasis should be placed on the children ...  Read more

My son attended this school last year, and unfortunately, I must agree with some of the comments I've read here. There seemed to be a general lack of discipline at the school. I don't know whether to attribute it to the teachers or the parents. What I witnessed was parents who did not seem to know ...  Read more

Unfortunately my son attends this school and it's a mess. There isn't an arts program at this school. There isn't any order in this shool. I went to the school to sit in my son's classes and in one class the teacher lets them do as they please. Unacceptable.

I disagree with most of the comments posted here. It is not the school's fault for how our children behave. We as parents should began discipline at home and teach them how to respect adults and to respect themselves. It is easier to blame someone else other than yourselves. Take the time to teach ...  Read more
