worst school ever, its a shame,this school used to be one of the best, not anymore, my child attend this school, and she told me yesterday a teacher hold 6th grade around his neck and was being physical with this kid and the students yelling at teacher she cant do that, security just stand there and did nothing, until the kid try to fight back that was when securiyt took the kid, this school is heading for a law suit,, my kid also told me her science teacher told her she is rude like her mother.

This school started as the #1 school in discrct 29. Now over the years failing students from other schools are rushing to come here. There isn't really a reason this school has dropped from an A to a C. Since we've lost funding this school isn't as rich in after- school programs. We're struggling to bring back track n' feild. The only way we can get this school back is bring back the test everyone had to take in 2003 when the school opened. If you failed you couldn't get in. The good thing about this school is the Parent involvment and the Principal leadership.

Ive been in this school since it opened almost 8 years ago and i can say that i am grateful that this school was built. this school is a really nice school. You would like going here a lot. the students connect with each other, the teachers are always understanding and this school has amazing leadership.

i attended this school from 4th grade until my 8th grade year. From the parents view this is one of the best schools out there but from the students view; well u just got to ask them; but for me it was a great experience. I learned so much that an average student doesnt know when they leave Junior High heading into High School. The teachers here are amazing and even though some may be hard on you at times they just want you to achive in life and make it out there. They see a Doctor or a Lawyer or something good in every student attendin there and they want to do their best to help with that. Also i gained lifetime friendships and never-forget-moments. Even teachers i've had became good friends. they really can connect wit you and are great to go to for help with anything.

This is an amazing school. The focus on academics, dance and personal development and responsibility is unsurpassed. If you are looking for a true learning venue this is the place.
