GreatSchools Rating:
10 out of 10

“Love this school! My daughter was having a hard time academically and in adjusting to a new school. The teachers, guidance counselor and assistant principal were very responsive when I requested a meeting. I was able to address my concerns, they listened attentively and really cared. As a result, they understood more of the challenges my daughter was having and helped her to integrate academically and socially. This year she’s doing much better academically, has friends, and feels good about herself.”
