Great school with alot of pride. A place to have your children.


Posted April 25, 2005

For the most part, teachers are very Conservative and kind and are great at what they do. However, the students at this school are very mean spirited and do not act as if they've had a day of discipline in their life. The teachers try to control them but seem to have problems.

Wonderful Excellerated english teacher. Band director is very dedicated and professional. The school would improve with a principal that demonstrates true leadership and not dictatorship.
