.To comment the most recent post by a teacher there... how much did they pay you to write this review? You know as well as everyone else that this school is horrible. You are breeding gangstas instead of productive, responsible, confident students. This school is a joke and its so very sad. It should be shut down.

I think this school has an excellent staff and further more staff who care. They probably care more than the parents do who some how have perfect attendance to the basketball games but are MIA at science fair night. The students want to learn, but teachers cannot do it by themselves. Instead of parents pointing the finger at the teacher, they need to step in and be parents and help their children. Instead of fighting the administration and believing a 12 year old over an adult, they need to support the teachers and staff as well as supporting their child to achieve academic excellence. The school has its problems like every other school, but at least we care!

This school is very unorganized and do not have the childrens best intrest at hand.The teachers are more concernd about gossiping than teaching and the principle has an excuse for everything.there is absolutly no leadership and something needes to be done.I have tried and spoken with the district office many times over a 2 year period and have yet to get anywhere....always the run around...

I think that this school does not have it's quality at hand. It is very unhealthy for a child to learn in a place where they don't teach what their supposed to.

The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
