    A ZERO! Do not send your kids here! They are adamant about discipline (detentions, etc) but getting them to help a struggling child is like pulling teeth, teachers leave right after dismissal like clock punchers. My child was promised bus service and has since missed many days due to driver call outs . Now we are told there is NO bus to pick her up or drop her off. This is her last year thankfully, if it wasn t so late in the year, I would have transferred her ANYWHERE BUT HERE!!!

    This handsome twin has been kept up well over the years and retains its dawn-of-the-postwar-era style and charm. If you have the same warped sense of humor I do, you might see blocks like this one in Mt.
