I took my son out of this horrible school the first chance I got. Awful environment, arrogant teachers, non-stop bullying, low quality curriculum, teachers don't care whether the student learns anything or not, they target one child, and no matter if the child is at fault or not, they still single him out, and much more. I would say, so far, it is the worst school I ever knew. Bad school. No etiquette, no respect. Disgusting and sick and negative environment. Your child will get out of this school psychologically damaged and with such low esteem.
I graduated from here back in 2009 and I wish I could go back every single day I absolutely loved it here. I got a great education, took honor classes with some of the most amazing teachers I've met. Now that I'm in college I still use some of the skills I learned back in middle school. Great staff, friendly and helpful teachers Not to mention a beautiful campus. - I will always be a bulldog
I have read the reviews here and the low numbers seem to come from those who are not educated or students who probably don't know any better. I am a parent here and a teacher in another district. Everyone I speak to there is helpful and it seems like the teachers care about the students. I saw a remark about amount of homework. HOMEWORK is not a baby sitter. Homework should only take about an hour at most. Homework should only reinforce the learned skills. So far a very good school.
