  • Reviewed by Parent or Guardian on February 27, 2011
  • Rating: 0 (NaN / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • This school is a disgrace to public high schools and the state of South Carolina. The curriculum is substandard, the teachers uneducated, and the principal unethical. Teachers can loose student tests & homework without subsequence leaving the student responsible or failing grade. There are no regulatory handicap parking spaces available near the schools front entrance. They are placed in the student parking lot which is a far walk for the disabled. The only available handicap spot near the front entrance is improperly sized and cannot fit a handicap accessible van and is generally occupied by faculty staff. In 2009 the principal decided to have a guest speaker who supposedly was a "reformed" convicted felon / serial killer. Need I say more! A rating of D in my opinion is extremely generous. If you move to this area I suggest a private school which in that area are extremely affordable and well worth it!
