My son has gone to a lot of schools and he really likes this one. He feels safe and he feels like he belongs. I’m so proud of how smart they made my child. They deserve 1st;)
This school was the only acceptable option for public schools in south Texas. However compared to my sons current school In north jersey it is a poor choice.
