If I could give this school zero stars, I would. The vice principal harasses us and our son almost on a daily basis. Meanwhile, they do not follow the 504 plan for our son. Don't attend Drum!!

I have two children who attend Drum Intermediate one of whom is a special needs child. I am totally impressed with the amount of dedication the staff has shown our son and their continued drive to help him achieve new levels of success.
