This school has many excellent teachers, but weak leadership lacking in consistent discipline. In the classes where the teachers are able to teach, they do provide a challenging acadmic program.

I beg to differ with whoever says this school is bad. This school is one of the greatest in the world to me! I dont see how someone could say this school is bad in any way!

Teachers have picks and are very judemental of students. There is a lack of parent to teacher communication. Teachers are not open minded about the different walks of life that children come form. The suport that children need in the class room does not exist.
