  • I attended high school here and if Im still in the area, I would prefer my kids to go here. They offer the IB program, and have a great deal of extracurriculars... sports, social/ service clubs... All the instructors I ever had contact with were great.

  • This school is a joke! The students are rarely listened to when there are issues and sadly if you are the wrong color the "deans" dont believe you. My daughter attended there 98/99 school year and had a boy threaten to slit her throat. White Girl, Black Boy. the "dean" was a black male and since the boy said he didn't say it, well that was the end of that. My daughter decided to leave early and get her G.E.D. and start college before she was even to have graduated H.S. The curriculum is poor. You learn things in senior English that they would teach in middle school and several of her friends she did have there couldn't read and they still pushed them through. For yous childs education I suggest home school if this is the option in your area.
