This school is sad. There is so much potential there, but the school leaders and MOST of the teachers there are not doin their jobs as professionals. This is compounded by the problem parents - the parents who expect their children to get an "A" on their work just because of who they are. I have ONE child that attended the Middle School and is currently in the High School. My child IS NOT challenged intellectually or any other fashion. You can skate by with doing the bare minimum of work - work that would get you a "C" or a "D" at most schools and here, it is A+ work. This is far away from being a "Great School!" There are NO "excellent" teachers; NO "strong" principals (Middle School or High School) and NO "challenging" academic programs. If you have a choice, FIND a different school. I will post my rating of the High School shortly. Thank the good Lord I don't have kids in the Elementary School. The BIGGEST problem in this school - overbearing and hateful parents who won't let the FEW good teachers do their jobs!

I give it one star. This school has so many teachers that are mean to the students and just plain rude! Teaching is not about yelling and screaming. It is about a love for kids and wanting to see them improve their lives. The principal and several teachers need to retire. The school needs some fresh new faces.

I am sorry but, I have two sons that attend this school and I have not one nice thing to say about the school principal or many of the educators there. Some of these teachers care, you know who you are.
