The school used to be such a great school but now there are always fights, test scores are dropping, and students are not caring about there education. The teachers and staff are pretty good and always try their best, however sometimes the students won't cooperate.


Posted July 26, 2011

This school is excellent for kids of all ages! The teachers are excellent and even though there are a lot of fights, you can get a excellent education out of it


Posted August 27, 2007

I think the school is great but its true as far as security they really dont do their job the way it should be done. Kids get hurt a lot and security really pays no mind. The teachers however are great and try their hardest at helping the kids.

the new principal is excellent


Posted August 10, 2004

the school is overcrowded and does not have enough room for all its students there is not enough security to put a stop to fights that occur daily. The teachers put in time and effort but it is fustrating. Yes grades and percentages can be up but only for those that are trying. It is hard to connect to every student when the school is overcopassitated. Maybe some trailors would be could for the upper grades. They need to stop trampling on the little kids. Parking is not so great either but that is not the schools fault. until the school can get some proper support i dont know how anyone will win.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
