  • This school is horrible. The dress code is non existent there, they allow the children to dress practically half naked for the girls and the boys. The teachers could care less if the children are learning anything and even if your child fails every class all year long they will not hold him back but will put him into the next grade. The guidance office staff are as childish in behavior as the teenagers, even the adults.
