  • i go to this school and i can tel you, it is one of the best schools in the county. it is unifrom but you will never, EVER find a gunfight or anything else like that here. the teachers really do care about you and they teach higher standerds than a lot of schools. its still a public school though. the principal knows EVERYONE and a lot of people who were doing terrible at other schools or went to a getto school go hre now and get much better grades. anyone who goes here, ussually doesnt leave and now that there is a high school open, it will be even more popular. if you want to go to this school, hurry because the waiting list is VERY long.
