My son went to this joke of a school for a few years. He had a IEP which the school and teachers would not follow. The so called leadership of this school wanted to put him in an afterschool program for 2 hours with a teacher who got busted for dwi at least 2 times. The only thing this school is worried about is the sports program. They could care less about students with special needs or are not "JOCKS' The entire staff should be replaced with a staff that cares about the students and not how many wins they get on the Field or court. We got my son out of this joke of a school and he did so much better.

I graduated from this school in 2010. Overall, I would say that I was prepared for college academically. I would say about half of the teachers really try to care about each of their students and to keep them on the right path. On the other hand, the majority of students, I believe, are not prepared emotionally and mentally for college life or starting in an entry-level job. The leadership and involvement of the principals with the students is certainly lacking and, in some cases, non-existent; for instance, the current head principal does not learn the names of all students, even though the assistants generally do within the first year. The school has about 500 students, most of whom go there all 4 years. Overall, the school day seems too structured, with only 4 minutes between bells, having to stay inside to eat lunch even though the "quad" area is enclosed, etc. The athletics department has its good and bad points- most of the teams do well throughout the seasons, but some of the coaches leave something to be desired. The fine arts department is more or less rebuilding at the moment, on the other hand.

My son graduated from this school in 2010. He received an excellent education. The principal staff was very fair. The teaching staff was great, for the most part. There were a few that are so close to retirement and do not appear to want to be there. His transition from HS to college was very smooth. We felt that he was very prepared for college. The athletic department was great and helped him become a college athlete. He completed his freshman year of college with a high GPA. This school has much to offer.

I am a student at this school, and there are few redeeming qualities to it. I think many of the teachers are quite talented at their jobs, especially the chemistry, english, and mathematics teachers. However, I believe many of the school's policies are pointless, arbitrary, and a hindrance to school functioning. Hopefully, these will be addressed in the coming year, but I'll mention the worst of them. Time between classes, in any school, must be long enough to accommodate the students. In the past, time between classes was roughly a full eight minutes. This gave a student plenty of time to use the restroom or change their books and make it to class on time. Last year, this was cut in half. Students were late to class and leaving to use the restroom frequently. Especially because of congestion in the narrow hallway. In short, this systems needs changing.

All of the classes offered are great. The ranges of classes are from one end of the spectrum to the other. I think the most of the teachers are great,as with all schools we have a few who are there for a paycheck, in my opinion. The only thing I want to complain about is when it rains,and we get alot of rain the roof leaks all over the place. I am told by my son and other students.
