  • Reviewed by Former Student on December 23, 2009
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • As An allum of the school, I feel that I have an accurate experience concerning this institution. This school is horrible beyond comparison to any other facility in the area. There is not an even distributiion of pupils according to race, as 70% are African American. Very poor for a magnet school. The ciriculum is very afro- centric, with no respect for the subjects at hand. The teachers are very disgruntled, and it shows in their teaching methods, with no enthusiam or drive when in front of students. i highly reccommend any other school for children.
