Great school. The principal isn't that bad and he is very fair. I appreciate the fact that my kid's teachers are always willing to help. The opportunities the school is open for kids to get work done is great. Much more different from where we came from.

Posted February 27, 2004

There is lack of teaching and leadership in the high school district. The teacher and principal have no concern over the student body, that is why there is such a high drop out rate. This district has one of the lowest rated schools in Texas and it is sad to say, that I pay my taxes so my children can get a education at a low rated school.
