  • very bad school. Bad neighborhood (Right across the street from the Stapleton projects). there were always fights when I attended. there was ALWAYS someone led out in handcuffs. The school is underfunded, overcrowded, and I feel pity for the teachers who have to put up with unruly students, and worse, their parents, who very often blow up in their faces over their children's bad grades, when it was the child at fault.

    Do your child a favor and spare their formative years. Send them to a better school.
