  • It is a really tough school for me, more because I got in so many fights. Well what do you expect I'm a fat white kid and that spells beat me up, but a lot of people stopped messing with me once they found out my mom owns a boxing gym and found out that I've been boxing since I could talk. While the fights kept coming it was a good school.

  • Tough place for tough students... Not a walk in the park. Principal is excellent. He cares about kids' future (which is rare among teachers!) and believes in prevention. Ally to parents.

  • I went to this school and I liked it there. I say that because I like how they ran the school. Also, the principal was great and so were the staff.
