Very very disappointed my child has been there since kindergarden. The first 4 years were great then its was downhill from then on, They hire teachers and they only stay 1 school year. The children are not prepaired for high school. The pricipal is overwhelmed and has know leadership skills she was better as a teacher.
My son is in Pre-K this year and is thriving. He is learning to read and is excelling in math and science! I'm not sure if we will keep him in the school through 8th grade but for early years the school seems to be providing a safe valuable experience for this family!
The classrooms are overcrowded with 30+ students per class. The teachers are different, mostly getting worst each year. The principle, Ms. Wright, has no idea what she is doing. The students are on a below average in academics. Reconsider sending your child to this school because they only want your money.
I was quite disappointed with the school as a whole. The students are not well prepared for High School. The principal Mrs is Wright is not good at her job the tuition goes up every year and no improvement in the academic area,most of the students did not get accepted in any of the puplic high school they applied for because their scores were so low...so what that tell you about the school....WASTE OF MONEY! SEND YOUR KIDS TO A CHARTER OR PUBLIC SCHOOL!!!!
If you are considering enrollment for your Middle school age child(ren), please RECONSIDER! I was quite disappointed w/the school as a whole. The academia is fair and the students are not well prepared for High School. The teachers are "lazy" and the principal has poor leadership skills!
This school is horrible. The teachers hardly teach and the students get in trouble for every little thing. The 8th graders are not properly prepared for high school. The principal ms.wright could do better
The quality of academics is only fair, though there are some excellent teachers there. The school does not prepare children for high school very well in regards to both Math and English. The tuition goes up every year but the quality stays the same. Many members of the staff have been there for many years however the Principal (Sister Gail Osbourne)will be retiring at the end of the 2006-2007 school year after 32 years of service. There are no extracurricular activities or music programs what so ever. A much better alternative than the neighborhood public schools.
