I have had 2 kids attend this school and had 2 different experiences.My special needs child was bullied terribly.My other child is doing well here i believe because she is focused on academics and not all the drama between students.It is a nice clean school and i do like the staff .

The administrators, teachers, support staff, and custodian really work hard to provide a clean and safe environment for our children to learn. The visual and performing arts has broaden many students both academically and socially.
