No, this place is a bonfied day care center. Students get away with everything. Walk out of class, curse out teachers, hit other students, all with no consequences

Develops empathy: Strongly disagree
Submitted by a parent · February 11, 2016
How could they possibly. Students are allowed to beat each other up and get a 5 minute time out and sent back to class.

Develops honesty: Strongly disagree
Submitted by a parent · February 11, 2016
No, they don't care about the students who are struggling or need help. They don't comply with IEP's at all. Don't let them lie to you.

Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective
Submitted by a parent · February 11, 2016
The school is completely out of compliance on all scholars IEP including my son. This is a disgrace!
