I whent to this school about 3 years ago i whent from 6th-8th grade, and to be honest it is a great school. The teachers are Ecellent and they have a great aditude towards helping their students. They also have this Great academic class that helps you prepare for college and helps you chose the caier you would like to persue and prepares you for college. That program is called AVID, i my self was in this program it cists no money to get into it but you must have at least a minimun of 2.5 or hgher GPA to get into it and you do go on allot of field trips to colleges and all that fun stuff. I would 100% recommend you put your child there in that school if you want them to succide, be prepared for college, be ambitious, and responxible, and also the important one Disciplined.
