  • This school has sometimes hardly any control of their students. Its very nasty. We have roaches,rats,and many other bugs. The subs at our school are very rude. The teachers are probably the best thing in the school besides the sports which do good in championships or meets are games must pay for EVERYTHING! The academics part is slacking. There is AVID,IB,MAGNET,and PAVA. The IB program is supposed to be the highest but has students who aren't determined or if the get bad grades or bad behavior wont improve. The school is slacking off.
