Open Quote If your kid is well liked you won’t have any problems. If not they will write them up (for forgetting a pencil) create a long record for your child over small things but it labels them as a bad kid for the next school.

There are full on fist fights on the bus and no cops will be called because it would ruin their reputation even though the video of fights are circulating among the kids via Snapchat where you can make out the bus driver wanting to call the cops but the administration yelling, “it’s unnecessary.” Even though the younger kids are scared.
The front staff is rude to the kids that get sent to the office.
If I had to do it all over again I would have never moved here and sent my kids to this school.
Parents beware Close Quote

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
