The worst school ever. No consistent discipline. No consequences for infractions. Students are out of control...Profanity, Running, Fighting, horse- playing never stops. Worst part they cannot close their mouths long enough to be instructed so test scores are the lowest in the state. Constant struggle to maintain order and control. Teachers care and are great and supportive but overworked, belittled by administration and not valued. Parental involvement minimal to none. Do not send you child here you will regret it, as they will fall right in line with the animalistic behavior!!!
