I would never recomend this school to anyone there are a couple amazing teachers and staff members but this school does not make the grade they have been failing for years with the state scores.

This school has great potential. A good school needs students, staff, and families working as a team. This school needs more involved parents that will instill a love and respect for school and staff.

no stars for this school, I have never experience a school that no one knows what the other one is doing. The classes are so loud that the children that what to learn can't.

This school needs serious restructuring. If the principal and teachers would pay more attention to the kids education instead of their uniform code it would be a start. There have been 3 principals in the last 5 years. Except there are teachers that have been kept around for over 20 years that no longer ...  Read more
