  • This was a terrible school when I was a student (which was only a few years ago.) Upon entering college I was completely unprepared and had to learn a lot of what I should have been taught on my own. I'd say out of however many teachers they have only 2 or 3 are really good at their jobs and I'd agree with some of the below comments about there being a lot of bullying.

  • The school is big. Nice. The students, the administration, and the teachers are all terrible. I never get the help I need and I find that there are a lot of stereotypes and bullying at the school. This isn't the nicest school I have been to.
