School Reviews

  • Recommended August 21, 2014 - Excellent teacher and quality of academic is top notch. Minority students get along with the student body and are made to feel part of the school community. Students are giving a chance to succeed and prepare for college. The pre-engineer and pre-medical classes are very challenging but the kids are open to several career paths. - Posted by Parent
