I think this is a great school. I attended this school so I can say that the teachers do whatever they can to help the children better themselves. If the children aren't doing their best its because they're not trying to do the word.

Terrible, principal and staff are not not professional, they are more interested in raising your child than teching them. We transfered from another district and my kids were honor roll students when they came to this school. By the end of their first year, their grades went from a's and b's to d's and f's. If you are a concerned parent and fights for your child, do not send them to this school.

I think that Mr. Henderson is doing an excellent job with the school. He gets involved with his students and parents. I believe some of the other principals could learn from this educator because he believes in teaching both academics and life situations. He has an excellent Teacher by the name of Ms. Branch who makes it her business to get the parents involved with their child(ren). The quality of the academics is top especially with students and extracurricular activities. Mr. Henderson believes that you must keep yourself above the rest to particpate in these activities. As a parent and former student I give the school two thumbs up.... RND Family
