  • this school is completely horrible do not allow your children to go here
    the administration is completely out of control and makes it almost impossible for the students to get anything worthwhile out of the high school experience.
    the teachers are incompetent and
    aren't even supplied with the books necessary to properly educate the students in the various subjects.
    the only reason this school has such high test scores is because there have been so many dropouts. if there are fewer students then of course the test scores will go up.
    this school is a horrible learning environment and may seriously diminish your child's chances of getting into a good college.
