School is almost new and location is convenient. Principal leadership could use some improvement. School has same problems other schools in area are experiencing - students that act out personal problems on school grounds e.g. fights between racially different students. If you are interested in having your student concentrate on sports this is the school for your student. Personally I do not want the emphasis of an educational facility to be sports. I feel that teachers should emphasize education and sports need to be extracurricular. There are some wonderful teachers but there are also some who would be better off not having a classroom.
