  • I am a sixth grade student going to this school. The lunch is horrible. why? because it is like half of the people get pizza and half of the people get crap. i just believe that this is unfair and this problem should be fixed before i leave the school.

  • As a graduate 1994, I have to say this is the worst school I had ever been in. Some of the teachers were very nice and helpful majority of the teachers were just too Jr. with little to no experience. There were daily fights and gang activity there. And all of that stemmed from the overcrowding at the school. When I first started it wasn’t that bad classes 25-30 per teacher, by the time I graduated 40 per teacher.
