  • I love this school. I am a freshman and i think its really good. there are a lot a ghetto kids but other than that GREAT! well i did have one teacher who always talked about how bad Christians are. I HATE HER! Oh and she talked about her one night stand with her husband when she met him. THANK THE LORD i dont have her anymore. Her name Mrs.M she teachers history.

  • I don't understand how anyone can say this is a good school. I have had multiple arguments with the principal and all the a.p's. Southern thinks they are they're own country with their own laws. I know my daughter's not perfect. I know she does have a mouth on her, but the complete disrespect I have gotten from the employees at this school is ridiculous.
