good school keeps parents unformed about how their child is doing and great teachers how know what they are doing and wont the kids to succeed
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 5, 2003

I attended this school in 2003, and the extra curricular activities are very minimal. It is a uniform school,but may change with in the next year. The teachers have very good discipline which rubs off onto the students. There's not much parent involvment unless your child participates in school activities.
