From the teachers to the principal great school all around! Mr. Tyndall is a person I had the pleasure to meet with, that goes above an beyond for the students and really cares about making a difference. I'm very happy my son got to experience his 8th grade here.

So, besides these comments made by teachers years ago, no recent updates? I guess the school either has nothing exeptional to offer or this site is useless.
