By a Parent on

Don't waste your child's education at this school.What they say
and do are TWO different things.
The whole staff needs to be revamped.....
Be-careful if you disagree with them.

By a Parent on

Lack of communication,from the staff, the secretaries
do not do a good job.No discipline for bad behavior.
And the church pastor is not doing a good job at all.
The high school is not any not send your
kids to these schools.
Your kids will recent you......

By a Parent on

I think that this is a school that needs to learn to communicate with the parents. I feel and see any parent can enroll thier children here and get away with excuses of why the children dont learn what is needed. I would never bring my child there again.
