School Reviews

This school is truly student centered. The administration is also involved in teaching. Therefore, they know what should be expected. Great Work Environment. Parent Involvement at all time high. Rarely do you see a student that isn't excited to attend school everyday. Students return after graduating and always have great memories and enjoy revisiting every chance they get. They also do volunteer hours during holidays at their high schools or during summer camp.
