  • i love this school!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Reviewed by Student on January 01, 2008
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • This school has been slipping into failure the last few years because the teachers have to take time out of class to explain minute details to nonenglish speaking people which is why the average person does not get quality learning skills to pass district and state tests which have steadily gone plummiting far below district and state averages
