We absolutely love this school and his staff! The school offers an array of different courses for students with different interests, the accelerated program is fantastic, and teachers are always quick to respond to questions and concerns even after hours. We could not be happier.

This has been the worst school experience I have ever had to deal with. The teachers, especially the 6th grade teaching staff are awful and the principal is not a problem solver. He is not proactive at getting matters resolved. Very passive Pricipal makes for a very careless and unethical teaching staff.

This school has great teachers and great staff members, since they all work to make the school a better place for the students.

Overall, a great school. Good teachers, well run, and issues (when they arise) are taken care of promptly. Teachers take the time to discuss your kids and work with you on issues. There was an off campus incident were a few kids got overly rowdy (on a few occasions previously also) on the school bus to the extent that the driver had to pulled over. The principle immediately drove over and those kids were removed from the bus route permanently. My only complaint is in regards to my child’s 7th grade math teacher, Ms. Mascari. I inquired as to the lack of homework and she told me that she did not believe in homework!!! The only work my child brought home was study guides for tests. The kids were spoon fed the tests, but there is no retention. We wanted to check if her approach works and gave 1 question from each chapter: 9-12. My son could not solve any of these correct. But his grade was A. The school get a good grade and their funding, but the students pay for it next semester when they are behind.
