  • When I first started attending it was o.k. Now it is just wack. They have cancelled so many things and put restrictions on a lot of other things. They are even making us read because scores are low. My scores are high and i feel i should not have to if i do not want to. By making us read they are shortening our lunches. Lunch is already short and there is a lot of students in the lunch room. On the days we read, first lunch is shortened to twelve minutes. That is twelve minutes to go to my locker, stand in line, sit down, eat, and still get to class. This is unfair. Honestly, I think we shoud have MS. Morris or Ms. Hill as our principal. Things would be a lot better.

  • The school is extremely flawed. There is no freedom whatsoever. There are 5 minutes for going between classes. Most teachers will not let you go to the bathroom during class. They have no funding for many things. Our lunch is too short yet has too many people in the lunch area. The principals are very unaccommodating. They suspend for tardies, some of which can not be avoided. Three tardies =1 day of suspension.

  • This school give the students no freedom at all, and has strict rules about bookbags and hats. At other schools they have break in between blocks but not us we have 5 minutes to get from one class to another, within those 5 minutes we have to go to our lockers,the bathroom and talk with our friends and if your late they want to suspend you what kinda crap is that.. bottom line this school sucks!!!!!!!!!
