  • This school is horrible. Teacher involvement was non existent. I only had 2 good teachers total the 4 yrs I attended. Way too much homework with very little instruction with barely any classwork. When I did ask for help in most cases they wouldn't even bother. I even had a math teacher "check" over my work tell me I was doing it right and then got a zero on the homework when I turned it in. At the end of the year I did graduate with a D avg. They tried to label me as a slow learner. In college I'm maintaining a 3.0 GPA without a struggle and they even want me to join the Honors Program. If you choose to send your child to this school, and they are getting bad grades be aware it is not necessarily their fault. Try sending them to a different school.
