  • This school has wonderful administration, teachers, and coachs. The main goal of the faculty is to help students to achieve success in the future. Coach's understand the importance of the athletes education and always remember that learning comes first. The school works as best it can with the supplies and funds that it is given. The school is in need of better funding in order to operate. Physically the school is not fit, with walls seperating from the floor and inadequate room for the enrollment rate. While neighboring schools in the county have excessive funding and have new buildings.
