This school is bad walk away if you can. I do not know how this school can get 5 stars on this website. I had 2 children in this school. One both are not trouble makers. But both of them have been pick on for the whole year in the school. And lunch time is like jail time at a prison.

I went to this school in the 60's. The teachers were awesome. I learned to speak grammatically correct English and I also got my love of reading from these great teachers. Thank you so much.

Great school! I had wonderful teachers there during the 60's. I'm so glad to see the school online and that it is still functioning after all these decades. I hope it continues for decades to come.

excellent school with excellent teachers and a history of having famous graduates. The one drawback is that as great as this school is ,it has NO Alumni association which is a great shame as they are only interested in the here and now
