This school is one of the worst schools my children have been to and I am putting 6 kids through school. The teachers are so willing to share any of your childrens imformation with anyone they choose. I could go on and on but believe me dont send your children there you will be sorry

It's nice looking now with the new building, but it is not run very well. The kids are un-informed, because the teachers are unwilling to help. Some of the teachers are nice, but shouldn't be teaching 7th graders.
