  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • This school was the worst ever,in all my years of schooling. The curriculum was poor and the school was diry. Staff and students didn't respect eachother,they hardley respected themselves. This school is a joke! Sacramento magazine ranked this school a 2,on a scale of 1-10. If you care about you or your childs education,look into somewhere else if at a possible.
