Wow.. I love this school because they have some of the most awesome staff there, from the Principle, all the way down to the janitors. My sons had some troubles in school last yr and I held them back and now both boys are doing awesome between the family at home and their family at school the boys are doing much better. I'm so glad that my sons teachers take the time that the boys need to get the things done that they were not grasping.

My child went to this school. They did not work with him. There was a real lack of Leadership and kindness. I feel when they lost Dr Walker they lost the only good thing about the school. I am so glad he is in a better School now.
