I would give this school an F on a report card. They claim to have a wonderful program. Their is only a handful of parents that even care what is going on at this school. My daughters were in the top of their class, moved and were behind. They give no homework because they can not take a chance on loosing books. Most of the teachers are new and find it very difficult to control their classrooms. The teachers are not the problem they are dedicated lack of parents at home after school to enforce anything that is taught at school. We gave this school all of our efforts and I am so sorry to say the people in this school will not acknowledge the problems and try to fix them. We found ourselves spinning our wheels.

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
