I went to this school for my 6th Grade year(2001-2002) and I have to say it was a great learning experience for me. Most of my teachers were also new so it helped with the transition. The music and sports programs in this school are excellent(while I was there at least) Mr. Marc Miller the Choir Director is an incredible teacher he taught me everything I know. Academically wise it could be better they should just turn it into a performing arts school IMO. My school year took place during the tragic events of 9/11 so not everyone was as focused as they should have been but it was still great.
There needs to be more parent involvement. Also stronger leadership. There are teachers who can't control students in class and not getting supportive corrective action from administration or parents. This disrupts learning for other students. Participating in extracuricular activities is good. I prefer a stronger educational foundation. The school system has not changed since I attended.
