Great school! My kids have been lucky; they've had really good teachers. They are all advanced and I couldn't ask for more. Key factor for all the parents; involvement. Good teachers are not enough to have your child excel in school. As a parent you need to be a part of their education, be involved and stay informed.

Hardly any programs for the children, no help for students who need a little extra attention; the only students that receive help are those who are failing miserably. there is a program in place for students that excel but nothing for the struggling children, why is that???

It is a very safe school. Teachers care for their students. Gradually, students are doing better. However, curriculum needs to be more structured. It seems like teachers are not on the same page.
