  • I went here during foster care. I liked it. I had very nice teachers who cared, and some good friends. My favorite teacher there was Mr. Metz. ~Andrea Strickland

  • Terrible school. Teachers and staff just don't care. I graduated 2004, my sister in 2006 and now my youngest sister is attending. Its very clear that most time goes toward punishment of trouble students rather than helping students move forward in life. Nothing but bad memories at that school....
