I have been a parent for approximately seven years and I can say my children have had a wonderful educational experience. If I had an issue with a staff, the principal was concerned and handle my situation in a professional way.

My children attended 7th and 8th grade at this school. This is the worst school in the county. Improvements need to be implemented from the leaders on down to the students. The school remind you of a zoo the students are completely out of control. I was glad when my children 2 years ended and I wouldn't recommend anyone sending their children there but if you live in that area you have no choice. They stress the wrong areas. Why would you put athletics over academics. Athletes get trophies and are highly prasied good academic students only get a sheet of paper(certificate) and no former praise.

This is a very wonderful school. I am learning more than what I have learned from a better rated school. For starters, they have more acedemic activities.
