This could be a great school. But the lack of communication and lack of attention is abhorrent. Homework is too much of students grades, there's hours of it every night, when students don't turn it in (but do generally well in their classes) they will fail. When they begin to fail, they will receive no remediation, despite a warning letter being sent home that an action plan will be sent "shortly". That action plan never comes, your student still struggles, and they are ignored. Disruptive bomb threats throughout the year from students and random strangers lead to a schizophrenic learning experience. Do not send gifted students here. None of my student's fellow gifted students are doing well. The only reason this school has a high graduation rate is the fact that they will fail out anyone who doesn't meet their standards. Avoid at all costs.

I really like this school. I'm in 8th grade and this is my first year. The reason I enjoy this school is because of the teachers and clubs. The teachers are rigorously involved in trying to provide you with the most knowledge possible. The teachers are very patient with the children. They also offer tutoring and/or extra credit. The clubs they have include Key Club, GSA, and Stitch Club etc. They embrace everyone, regardless of gender, race, or sexual orientation. Some of the notable teachers include Mr. Sowell, Mrs. Rowan, Mrs. Magby, and Mr. Pickens. Some warnings for newcomers of the 8th grade; Mr. Pickens yells a lot so do not test him, Ms. Rankin doesn't put in grades, and work hard in Mrs. Magby's class!
