One reviewer wrote: “The Principal is horrible to work with. Very hands off and arrogant. It feels like the teachers are afraid of her. If you have a child that has learning needs or help, don’t expect it from this school. Also, don’t expect your kid to be at reading level. They lower standards and don’t address low reading scores.”
Another reviewer wrote: “Horrible. The principal is rude and doesn’t care.”
