  • Overall, this school has some serious hindrances both administratively and with the student body. Discipline is dealt with very poorly, and standards of teacher respect are lacking. Students display below average aptitude and motivation, yet AP and Honors students are driven. School culture is inner city and takes a while to adjust to. Standardized Test scores are very low, yet little emphasis is put on curbing this issue. Overall, below average.
