Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

The problem (s) with this school is both the staff and students. The students (most of them) have literally no respect for Authority whatsoever. I grew up in this neighborhood since I was 8, It's a tough and crime infested area. I can see why the students don't care, there's no positive role models around them. I was also one of the few white students here as well, it taught me to defend myself because I was usually beaten up regularly the first week. After a while, it stopped. The problem with the staff is, they don't care what happens as long as they get their paycheck at the end of the month. This is not a place for white people, unless you live in the area. The education lacks in areas, unless you're in the ELL program. Overall, I give it a 4/10

If your child has an IEP, they will never reach a higher grade level that they entered the school with. No school bus system. Teachers do not call you if your child gets hit, kicked, potientially failing a class or classes. Also no consequence for students beating up other students on a every day basis. Even with multiple parents frantic calls and complaints.

The office staff is extremely rude, they talked to me like I was stupid. My daughter did not feel safe and had to transfer her out. If you can get past the staff talking down to you, and show some interest in your child and have no other options, It is O.K at best.
