  • I WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS ALL PARENTS AND ASK THAT YOU ALL CALL OR EMAIL THE SCHOOL AND ASK WHY THIS YEAR AS OUR GRADUATING CALSS OF 2011 THAT HAVE ATTENDED 12 Yrs of school and should be enjoying all the fun of Senior year is being taken from them and it's something they have earned and a tradition at this school for years. I believe the school District and Administraters ought to rethink the seniors parade,cook-out and all out fun for homecoming THEY ALL DESERVE JUST AS THE SENIORS BEFORE THEM HAVE. I HOPE ALL PARENTS DO EVERYTHING IN THERE POWER TO GET ALL THE SENIORS USUAL PRILIVEDGES DONE JUST AS THEY HAVE ALWAYS DONE IN THE PAST!!!THEY DESERVE THIS AND AS A RISING SENIOR IT'S SOMETHING THEi FORWARD TO AND i BELIEVE AND HOPE OTHER PARENTS GET INVOLVED AND LET THE aDMINSITRATION, dISTRICT oFFICE AND EVERYONE ELSE THAT WE OWE THIS LITTLE BIT OF FUN TO ALL SENIORS GRADUATING THIS YEAR

  • I've been taught at different schools throughout my childhood, and this is the WORST school I've ever attended; I have plenty of reasons to hate this pathetic excuse for a school. Reason #1: THE (...) DRESS CODE! This atrocious "uniform" policy is probably the main reason why I hate this school. IT DOESN'T WORK AT ALL. No matter what you people do, these guys are STILL gonna sag their pants. Also, the uniform make me look like a (...). Reason #2: THE STUPID I.D. POLICY. Only one thing can be said about this absurd policy: It's absolutely FUTILE. Reason #3: THE STUDENTS. Most of the students my sister and I met here are stupid, judgmental, immature, and most of all, RUDE. To all of the parents out there, I have one piece of advice: Home-schooling is WAY better than sending your child to this so-called school!

  • Ok for one the teachers & the district is saying "oh this dress code/uniform is going to stop all the violence happening" this is BS! Yall think like this "uniform" is going to stop the guys from the sagging pants? that's a joke! Yall couldnt stop them before, whats uniform going to do? & for the less fortunate they have to go out and buy all these new clothes why not use the clothes from the last year? this is stupid! But thanks for making my parents go broke for buying these uniforms!

  • This school is boring and we really don't need uniforms and oh by the way.....the ID policy is so stupid! People who don't even go to the school could come in and buy a temp and then do something bad. I don't call that safe mr.Parent/Guardien who commented in 08.
