My son describes this school as being, "ghetto". He hasn't been there very long and has already been told by one of his teachers that he felt sorry for him for having transferred to this school. We were moved to this area site unseen, and not by choice. Seeing the riffraff that surrounds the campus, I would have to say ghetto is probably very accurate. Teachers have no control of the students in their classes, which makes it very hard for a child who wishes to learn concentrate. If you're considering moving to this district, keep looking. The area has some of the most affordable housing in the state, but remember, you get what you pay for.
