My daughter went to school there and was not allowed to participate in offered courses because she was female. The leadership retaliated against her. She dropped out. I do not know how a 4.0 student can be treated so harshly by any school system. School Board refused to offer any assistance.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 27, 2010

I went to school here for three years. I have traveled to many different locations in the United States and went to many schools over my lifetime. Needless to say, this was the worst school I have ever attended. I was an AFJROTC cadet with a high leadership role and I was treated as if I were the scum of the earth. It is bad when a student who is attempting to make the world a better place is struck down by his teachers, principal and his peers. The safety was poor, the teacher quality was unsatisfactory and the extracurricular activities were limited and offered absolutely nothing to benefit students in their everyday lives. I did not feel prepared for college because of this and I am still having a very difficult time being successful in college. This is all to blame on my lack of a good quality high school education.
