  • This school is more like a prison. It houses bullies, drugies, junkies, and the dean has to be the worste I've ever seen.It has its predators and its prey. People get hurt, call the school complain, but does anything happen...nope!
    Worste school ever!

  • Great school for bullies. Dean of students does a good job protecting them. Don't worry, parents will complain, but nothing happens. Patrols even get awards AND a trip. So, if your child is a bully, send them here, if not, send them were they are safe.
