Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

This school has negatively impacted my college experience both on an academic and social level. The only way your kid can be accepted as student there is if they sign a waiver/contract to allow the teachers to send them to time out. The parents make their kids do this! The curriculum doesn t teach age appropriate topics very well, the teachers often don't know what they're doing. I ask you this, if you asked an18 year old how many words they can find in Rainy Monday they'd feel insulted, or angry and think you take them for a fool! There are three time out rooms all the sizes of shoe closets that aren t high enough, they have a little window and a circular hole for a door handle which can give you splinters. What if a very fat or obese person goes in the room, can they get in and out easily? What about a fat and tall person? I once saw a tall skinny kid and in the room and his neck was bent down because it wasn't a tall enough room! He could get a neck ache/sore neck maybe even a medical issue! What if there was a person on a wheel chair, could they get in a room. What if that person was fat and tall? What if someone had a cold? The rooms don't get sanitized after each use! Gross!

If you want a sitter service for your kid, this is the place. Scimpy academics; too much left to student self-teach. Self-serving administrators with little moral leadership. Certainly does not match the image presented. Districts pay lots of $$ for what??
