  • This school sucks. They have a horrible staff, and they favor students. People get bullied on a day to day basis, but I guess it happens.

  • Most disciplinary problems are not handled the same for each student according to the offense. Last year, I witnessed two fighting students get 10 days suspension (5 out of school and 5 in school) while another two fighting students only received 3 days in school suspension.

  • Wow, don't even know where to begin. I will start with the principals, They are all exceptional. They truly care about the kids and want them to succeed in life and there education. They do not just give up on them and try to just get them pushed trough. I don't know of a high school were you walk in on the first day and any given day and find the local Sheriff walking around shaking hands and cutting up with the kids. They know he is there and also cares about there life. They have a great faculty. They think long and hard (and pray) before they hire someone. You can look at grades and that education is first on there list.
