This school Is absolutely horrible! No words can describe my son's suffering and behavior since he's attended there. imagine a school where the uncontrollable kids are in control and the staff and administration are unable to control their actions and behavior there's constant property destruction, cursing "towards staff and students", fighting, horse playing, sexual harassment towards students and staff and constant pulling of the fire alarm. Nobody seems to be able to manage these students. I'm very disappointed at the school and staff members for allowing such behavior to go on everyday. Teachers are unable to provide education as often because the class periods are disrupted by students who want to curse, rap, bang on the desk, talk about sex, drugs, and gang related things! the student's have also caused problems to the Nestle Dreyers factory next door whom canceled the philips school student work program from there. This school is awful and lacks professional and strong guidance, not to mention a majority of staff are not helpful and provoke students!! I would never recommend this "school" in matter of fact it's more like a Zoo!

Great resources, beautiful campus and upbeat teaching staff. My daughter loves this school. However, I haven't seen tangible evidence of what she's learning there. She isn't allowed to take school books home and homework is rare. The school does a poor job communicating with parents. Would be a fantastic school otherwise.

Great school for ED and SLD children. Small size allows for great flexibility in programs and the behavior staff is top notch
