  • this school needs to keep track of their money! This is the third time i have payed approx 45$ for a yearbook and the third time they show that i have not payed. Also, they need to look into where the money that students bring in from the glee club goes... as far as i have seen less than half of that money is actually used for the club itself... WHERE DOES OUR MONEY GO?!

  • This school has come along way. We learn a lot, the teachers/principle help us whenever we need it, and theyr are great extra curricular activities offered. I love the school and the experience that comes from it!

  • The school is really quick paced and the classes cover too much to remember. You learn one thing one day, and the next you are already trying to move forward, so there is no time to remember, they expect too much work for home.

  • This school is horrible. The teachers are either stupid, inexperienced, or too old to understand reason. There are too many students and not enough room. People get punished for absolutely no reason and the people that are doing the crime get out of the time. Horrible school.
