    Health & Safety: I feel that the school is very informative to students and parents regarding sicknesses that are going around the school and they maintain a very safe and healthy environment. They also have an open door policy for students and parents pertaining to anything that may come about.

    Overall Experience: I've found that the teachers and counselors are uninvolved in guiding children down the right path for the future. They are more or less on their own.
