This school is decent. But it depends on the person & their needs. I was a student here, transferring from Camden Catholic and honestly, it isn't the "best" when it comes to academics. I learned more in private school. Some of the teachers (i.e.science) don't make class interesting enough for kids to pay attention & some just don't teach. But of course, because of tenure admin. still keeps them & ignore students issues. Most of the career & english classes however are taught by professionals and do an excellent job with their students. The school is in okay condition. There are the occasional pests. The new building is very nice and clean however. Most of the school's pop. come from Camden so their is a lot of loud, ghetto, ignorant kids. And there isn't a lot of fun things like pep rallies, and spirit weeks, and activities like other schools, so it makes the school year long and boring. If I could I would have changed a LOT of things here but it was an "okay" school.

I feel as this school is a very good school to go. I was a student here at one time. I had the best education that I could have gotten, that I couldn't have gotten anywhere else.

Well being a student I see the inside looking out. Having the experience of the school, I find that it is not a bad school. In turn it is a great and acceptable school. I personally feel academics provided at exceptionally.
