  • I graduated from this school last year and it was a great school to go to and is a great school to go to this day on. I enjoyed all of teachers and all of staff here. To me this will always be my school even though Ive already graduated. I miss it a whole lot.

  • Honestly, this is one of the worst school to send your children to. The majority of the budgets seems to go to making the place look better, and giving the obese (...) a segway. quality text books, on the other hand, seem to be in short supply. Not only are they obsessed with how the school looks, most of the teachers are unable to look much past the appearance of the students, and several seem to have a personal problem with body art. Parents, If your child is the least bit "Different," do your self and them a favor, and do not send them to this horrid, awful institution.‎

  • I went to this school last year and part of this year. The teachers are great. Also they make the class fun, well some of them. The classrooms have enough room for all the students in the class, until new students arrive. The students there well, some are totally awesome and the others well aren't so awesome. These are my thoughts on this school!Thank you!
