As a student, I've seen the best and worst of the school. I have seen students act out, but that happens in every school. For the most part students are very well behaved and work hard. The teachers care a lot about the students. They will talk to any student in need and will graciously help them. They are prepared to assist anyone and everyone. The books and teaching methods are newer and up to date with today's world. Students are taught well by very intelligent and intellectual teachers who are very interactive with the students. In fact, the students who are in extra-curricular activities excel in bringing the school various honors. Not only are we renown for our incredible athletics department, but our debate and mock trial teams have also earned much recognition. So all in all, the school may seem terrible but that is from an outside view. From someone who actually participated in extra-curricular activities and has needed the help and advice from the teachers, I can say you can't judge the school by its appearance. Its a very good school and it's worth going to for a very good education.
This school is not worth all the school taxes that I pay in this district. I just don't understand how students can receive honors when they don't have books, don't study and never has any reports, compositions or other school projects to complete. I can't even rate the school. Their just wasting the taxpayers money.
Horrible school!! The students are bad, uncivil, and the books aren't updated. All the children talk about is, so called clothing brands and other stupid things. Like rappers. Seriously, who cares about that? The students are bad, I would know. I go there.
This school is horrible and should be permanently closed immediately. No books are supplied to the students. The teachers along with the office never return calls. This school far from average and even farther from good.
