  • As a parent, I have to say this school needs a lot of work. The kids are great. They should be, This county has very little serious drug use, poverty issues, race problems or language barriers. It is very white, which makes it about as exciting as Wonder Bread.

    The problem is the lack of concern on the part of the teachers and administration. Somehow, parents are supposed to divine what is occurring in the classrooms as the teachers pretty much run things the way they want with little or no oversight or concern by the administration. Issues such as lack of homework completion are ignored by the teachers. They send no notices to the parents. My family background is teaching and I find this attitude outrageous. In essence, their lack of professionalism affects my child's grade and college potential. Very dissatisfied with this county.

  • My favorite school. I had a great time playing possum. When the School Greeters made their moves on this New Kid In Town I would play dumb and dish it out to them when they least expected it. The School Of Hard Knuckles And Kicks is great fun. I had a fair amount of martial arts since I was three years old.

  • This school is very rewarding to those willing to work and a school full of people willing to bring you into their group if you're not focused on grades. I would say that if you want friends or you want a good education then this is a great school for you.

  • Hi my name is Carl Assy, and I HATE this school The first day I got here I was "greeted" by the juniors and got beat up and shoved in the pool, and the students here are on the tempest side but the teachers are good
