I'm going into 8th grade next year and the lunch is what you will feed a dog. They put cameras in the school and kids still skip class and don't get in trouble for it, i remember one time a kid left the school building and they was looking for him.And finally when I started the school since I was in 6th grade and there was fights almost every day. Hopefully my review was helpful.

This school is not so bad as you think it is. Sure they may have alot of fights,but with the security guards there arent much. The teachers are really nice.

This school is great! yews, the school has it problems, but the teachers offer excellent education , there are chances to excel more in school , like honors class, and ttthe rewards, like trips, prizes, etc. are worth the sometime trouble that happens in school.

Need more extra currricular activities to keep children more active and out of trouble eg. home economics courses for girls and art classes for all.

I agree with most of the people who wrote a review. I am in the honers class, there still are a lot of chaos in this school. The only reason why I would think someone will want to go to this is because of the teachers. They one of the most determined teachers i meet to help their students pass.

I Would really have to disagree... This will be the last yr. in this school for my child, the security was more than lax, there are gangs in this school, roaming detectors, daily fights & jumpings, the one good thing is that the school participates in the GEAR UP program, which I must praise and am extremely thankful for.

I just graduated from this school. I think the school environment and the students there are just bad. There's fights almost everyday, students cutting class constantly wandering the hallways and other things. But based on the education given, its pretty good, just depends a bit. I was put in honors classes in each grade, in the 8th grade in honors they allow the seniors,who really want to learn and get an education, the right to take Math A and Earth Science Regents classes. This school is trying to improve, they made each floor a different academy. Academy of Performance and Visual Arts, Academy of Exploration, and the Academy of Math and Science.

I go to this school. Honestly the school isnt half bad because you actually have teachers in the school who cares about the students. Teachers like Ms.Barret and Mr.Gnaghi just to name a few would give up there lunch to help the students. But I believe that the Changes made to the school is bad mostly the uniform because it doesnt give the kids the freedom to express who they are by what they wear. I believe we come to school to learn not to be jugded on by what we where. I beleive its just going to cause more problems and there should be a way for the kids to petition it.

The school is poorly run. These children should have higher test scores and it shows that they are suffering. Mainly in math ..My child has a teacher tutoring her and in the 7th grade she still has problems multiplying. I had to teach her the basics i thought she had already learned. My sister is a 7th grade teacher my mother was a principal and we all wonder how she got passed to the next grade.I have already written the state along with 200 other people pleading for help in the school system...OUR KIDS NEED HELP!
