This school doesn't prepare student to be college ready. There are very few teachers that do invest on the students education. As well, teachers who don't care enough to teach students that all they have students do is read from textbooks and answer a few questions and your done for the day. But, it is not just teachers, its the counselors, administration, and the district who need to invest on giving students the right tools. Students are not left behind, the majority don't care about continuing or pursuing higher education. Only a few of the students care and those students are deprived and striped out of having a the right level of education. Having students wear uniforms, and more authority over these students is not the solution to bigger issues here. Parents and students have to take charge and demand better educational services and teachers, counselors, and the administrators have to work together to meet goals. This school would improve a lot if the school policies, the educational system, and the management of the school's money changes to better the way teachers teach, counselors advise, and students grasp of knowledge.
Really bad school! Was a student at this school and there were a couple of good teachers but where the problem really is, is with the counselors and administration. The students need strong leadership so that they don't end up being another statistic and unfortunately this school is not there.
This school has its up's and downs... I agree this school has teachers & staff that do not care about students learning and only care about the cash. Still their are teachers and do and a great teachers. The uniform policy i disagree. If we wore a uniform it would not match with the school color which is green & gold. Wheres the school spirit? This school has improved since 2005. Not many fights going on now a days and i call that an improvement from the past riots. All i would like is for the adults in school, no the district would allow for students to participate in debates on subjects about, like this new news about Jefferson become a charter school. apart from that this school is great
