This school has taken a nosedive since the "change of command" in administration. The teachers are not supported, the students are running the school, and a staff member told me there had been 24 fights already this year.

Great school in regards to discipline. The principal does not tolerate foolishness nor does she bend the rules for anyone. Students are presented with the code of conduct policy at the beginning of the school year and are expected to follow it accordingly. I think some of the punishments are a bit ...  Read more

My son has attended this school for 2 years now and I'm really pleased with the ease of communication with teachers via school fusion. So far he has no major complaints either......
