This school is sad representation of how America's schools don't meet the standards for today's fast paced world.

This scool is a sad representation of how America's educational system doesn't meet the standards of today's fast paced world. It's upsetting to think some people can actually label this school exceptional. Many teachers here aren't even certified to teach.

My child is more challenged than his previous public school. He is provided individualized attention and on honor roll. He has gone from below basic to proficient in 3 years. This school has also taught him the importance of character and good citizenship
