    A HORRIBLE SCHOOL. The academics are insanely below average, they teach everyone below grade level. The students are way too sheltered and are not exposed to the real world. Teachers also gossip about students. The 8th grade is VERY disorganized, there is not any scheduled class periods and they just move your class whenever they feel and give you an art and craft to an d not any work. Their grading is NOT A,B,C, D, F they grade you by their fake own number grading scale which makes them seem as they are teaching. If you are in middle school here they treat you as if you are in kindergarten. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE.
