  • Rating: 2 (2 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I am an alumni from 1973. This school did very little to protect the interests and safety of its students, especially from bullies and extreme physical aggressions. Academics about average, maybe a little above national averages.

  • How can you ban flip-flops, hoodies, & bookbags? Can you say hello to many news reporters? I can.
