Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Reviews

August 08, 2014
The overall quality of education in this school is terrible. There are no real 'electives', which are classes which you pick. Instead you change classes for 4th Block / Period every 6 weeks. This would be good, if the classes weren't so bad. There is a class (Chorus) where you supposedly learn about music, but in my time as a 7th grader all I learned about was how to memorize some silly facts about psychedelic music and old theater performances. Then there are some other useless ones. There is one that is somewhat good, which is media, but the only part that actually will help you out in life is what they do on Fridays (so only 6 days out of the whole year). This class teaches you about careers. This school fails to find many options for advanced placement kids such as myself. I just finished 7th grade, and was in the highest level possible for math, but I found that level still pretty simple. There were no options for higher level children. Also, Social Studies and Science are only shown half the year, so all the information is quite watered down and the classes are rushed. You can tell how bad the education is by simply looking at the average EOG scores.
