I love the fact that this school offers a safe environment for my child. It's not perfect at the school, but it is better in many ways from what I have experienced and seen at other schools. Yes, there are some strict regulations like the dress code and student discipline but I like that because it helps keep the kids safe and it helps the kids focus on academics.

the administration has not demonstrated the "student-teacher-parent triad" along with "mutual support of parents, students, school personnel, and the community" to be part of their core values and mission statements. many competent and dedicated teachers have been let go with out notice or explanation while teachers who can not be understood by parents and students alike are allowed to continue teaching in core subjects like math and science.

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.
