Just another overcrowded underfunded baby-sitting service. Some of the teachers are okay, but the administration doesn't seem to like the students or the teachers.

Thanks to Mrs. Turner, the Vice-Principal and athletic Director for letting football players bully other students and slide through school with no consequences. Yeah, thanks a lot. :(

Some teachers are pretty good, but most are just trying to make it through each day. Classes are too overcrowded to do much.

There's a lot of homework, but it isn't graded, just checked off that you turned "something" in.

No, it's just going through the motions and don't create any problems or require any attention.

No, students are just herded from class to class like cattle. I went to a school before this one that was so much better. It's sad. :(

The school is very cliquish with a lot of bullying. The jocks (student athletes) can do whatever they want with no consequences.

Too much bullying and stealing and cheating going on, and nobody cares. A few students throw food in the cafeteria and everyone gets punished.

This is a great school that suffers from many misperceptions. The students are kind and caring. The staff works hard to meet the needs of the students. There are many AP programs, Science Olympiad, Academic Decathlon type programs that challenge the brightest students regardless of what the school's reputation says. It is a safe campus. Teachers are held to a high standard. If you have questions go talk to the administration and teachers. You will be surprised at the great things this school is doing.

I will be a senior this year. I'm excited and nervous to leave. I don't feel prepared for college or the world. The class sizes are large. Some teachers go above and beyond while others....do not. They school picks favorites and there are a lot of fights/drugs. The schools motto is "caring and effective". Personally I'm tired of hearing the principal tell us how much she loves us. There is a lot of extracurricular activities though. I can't say how the sports teams are because I've never joined one. The fine arts are and music are awesome though. we have academies that are supposed to help guide us to our future careers but honestly they don't do anything. Maybe this year will be better? I doubt it though.
