My child attends this school and I feel their are some good and bad teachers. I do feel the class rooms are crowded. When I first started my child in the school in 2012 the ratio was better, now it's different. I feel that the children are overwhelmed with work. The class work needs to be mortified and the special education classes time needs to be lengthen or incorporate a class or two just for this need. I feel this school has positive potential and it's one of the best in the area.

This school lacks good leadership skills. Many teachers are afraid to speak up because they feel they will lose their jobs. Students are passed on when they are failing. The best teacher there have left the school for various reasons. This community deserves better!!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
