I agree with reviewer #1, this school needs more after school activities. My second issue is that a few of the teachers are awesome, but some of them needs to work on their social skills desperatlely.

The have a excellent staff. But the school need more extracurricular activites to keep the kids interest in learning. My belief is that if a child have something the really want to do, they will work harder in school to keep up their grades and conduct. I was rasied up in Miami, Fla. Our school had so much to offer us, from tennis, golf football, modern dancing, cheerleading and I can go on and on. Well that all I have to said for now.

This is a great school. My 3 children attended and I feel they really learned alot. The teachers and the principal really cared about them and made me as a parent feel safe in having them attend here.
