Mostly bureaucratic based, policy driven public school. The staff practices a paradigm of C.Y.A., and students are treated as just a resource to facilitate promotions, based solely on aggregated standardized test scores. Individual student progress appears to be irrelevant as long as the standard test score train can be kept going. Mediocre school at best................ Any person that gives this school a rating of 4 or more stars either has a personal, vested interest in the school, or is obviously NOT paying attention to the inner workings at this school.
