I am very dishearten by the leadership/administration of this school. I was taught that if you can t say something positive don t say nothing at all. After hearing the sorrow and the bewilderment of a male 9th grade honor roll student, say It is not the students. I realized that someone has to stand up and tell the truth about the school. Yes, the school s environment is not a conducive for a positive learning experience. The school as around 189 students. This is appealing to a parent looking for small learning environment, therefore, assuming it would be a great learning opportunity. However, the school has a dysfunctional culture and what is frighting about it is that the school s administration blames the students alI (189) for the school s climate. Fun teachers are not necessarily good teacher from a parent point of view.

This school is horrible, it does not prepare your child for college at all . Yeah it has it's good teachers but also most of the teachers cannot control the students, too much drama. Not worth the money on the uniform or not worth your child's time

Mr. Ivory, Ms. Ruiz and Mr. Holt are excellent teachers. They really care about the students learning. They allow you to contact them on their personal cell phones. The office staff Mrs B. are amazing. This school provides breakfast and lunch. The uniform looks good, and if your child wear the uniform they are given credit. I love that this school is small in size. My child has lots of books. This is my child second year.

This school has a good concept but bad administration to hold and bring together that concept. The school worries to much on it's uniform and not enough on education ,that's why so many student have transfered. The administration do not under consideration what the parents and the students say.
