This is a decent school, but I still wouldn't give it a thumbs up. Some teachers care about the students and their grades and others won't even attempt to teach at a student's learning method. The teachers who do care get involved with the parents and the students (and you can tell there are few good teachers at this school) and work through problems that may be at home or in the learning area. The discipline in this school is also lacking. There are often fights, profanity, and drug busts. Also, the school is filthy! The bathrooms have missing toilets (dirty toilets too) and the hall floors are caked in dirt and dust. A custodian is famous among the students for sleeping in the men's room and fixing his truck in the school parking lot. The school also has free breakfasts and according to most students, sometimes their breakfast isn't even cooked thoroughly.

Having taught here for 2 years back at the turn of the century, I found the small size made it easy to really get to know the students one on one, as well as their parents--great support for faculty, superb librarians, great computer accessibility for students, ROTC program is superb as is the music department. Internet instruction in varied courses leads to many courses regular large schools don't even think of offering, like marine biology. From the cleaning staff to the office staff, everyone works for helping get students to their goals. This school, though small, is a great place to have your children learn, especially when compared to other schools I have worked im.

Everyone says that the school is so bad but the school is little so the kids get a lot more feed back from the teachers. I just moved from there to very large school so I know that the school is a pretty good school. Mixed population but it works!
