  • Reviewed by Student on March 05, 2009
  • Rating: 3 (3 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Very Musically oriented. It does contain cliques throughout the school. There is a system of Warhawk watches. Where if the parent does not sign the sheet, the kids have to stay after school. It is best for a child that is organized and extra curricular activities, such as track, football, and basketball. DO ask money to be paid in advance.
