Best school in the area! Teachers are dedicated, and Mr. Taylor is the greatest principal of all time. Helping young men get into college!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted November 20, 2008

This is a wonderful school. I see the care, concern, empathy of the all the staff towards the young men who attend. In addition, the curriculum is geared toward college prep -- which is much needed in the inner-city schools (especially high school). I am very greatful my son has been afforded the opportunity to attend such a wonderful learning institution.
