The school is no longer the same school from 4-5 years ago. They have random metal detectors scanning and a police station center right on the sidewalk with cameras due to the spike in crime inside the school. There is no curriculum, there are no textbooks, graduation rate is at 63%, their afterschool program doesn't exist, the lunchroom is a war zone. The school is a complete mess. The school is rated as one of the top 10 worst in the city. It's a very dangerous environment.

This school curriculum is so bad the children get no textbooks. The guiance counselors say that they will help and never do. The pre med/teaching program is terrible. The children cannot use the lockers outside in the hallway. The principal is very lazy he does not do his job right. The only good thing I can say about the school is that the parent coordinator Angie Patruno and Ms Vasquez 10th grade guidance are the best.

I love this school. The parent coordinatro Angie Patruno is warm and friendly. She is also very helpful. My child is receiving a rigorous curriculum. The music, art adn sports program are amazing. My child has taken advantage of all these activities.
