  • I think their are many fights and a lot of racial tension. I also think everybody can get along when needed.For example a student a couple of years ago was shot, and everybody came together and still does to remember him.

  • the school staff are excellent and really do care for the children. There is a fight at least once or more a day. I had to pull my son out of the school because parents aren't raising their children to respect adults or their peers. Otherwise your child can receive a good education but some children behavior at the school requires alot of discipline. Mr. S the dean of students does a awesome job with all the students. Him and the principal really care about students safety!!

  • If u don't go 2 the school u don't know what's actually going on so u can't say bad things about it. It's actually a great school!!! Just a few undisciplined children!!!

  • I disagree...this school has police called way to many times, the sports programs are pathetic, and some of the teachers are questionable. There are too many fights and too much racial tension.... I would not recommend it.
