Great New School! The security measures are above reproach. The facilities themselves are very sleek and functional with lots of new technology. My only complaint is the lack of parking...the staff does do a good job of directing traffic and keeping the flow going. Whoever came up with the plans should have known better than to only have staff parking and about 2 dozen other parking spaces. Other than that, this school is a vast improvement over Edna's previous facilities.
