  • Just because you failed high school doesn't mean you can take it out on the school. It's about time you grew up and got rid of that hatred of yours because that can't be healthy.

  • This school is a joke. Most students learn nothing and most teachers/staff don't care. The building is run down with sinks being broken off the bathroom wall, lights burnt out everywhere, carpet threadbare, dirty, wallpaper peeling off the walls, and if you are not a jock, you don't matter.

  • I attended this school from 1981 - 1986. I enjoyed the variation of courses, diversity of cultures, and the ability to learn from my friends.
