  • this school is kinda lame but it is a great school. Mr. Reynoso, Mr.Aguirre, Ms.Rivera and Ms. Andrews the s.a.p counselor is a really helpful person this teachers that i named right now are the best they really help my daughter end son in most of there subjects. If you guys would give better electives for example cooking classes and technical tech that can help the students get better at typing and it would be easier to type their school reports.
