  • This school does not offer much opportunity for advancement. The curriculum is outdated compared to other schools & is in no way a challenge. The staff does not do enough to make these students college-bound or have classes as an introduction to a trade. Students getting into a larger school or accepted into a University will face the shocking truth of an independent, competitive, faster-paced, variety of studies which could lead a student to drop out of college.

  • This is a horrible school...not only do they not tell you what you need to graduate until your senoir year and it is too late, they also have no respect for the student body. There were girls getting raped in the restroom and they make you take classes out of order...who in their right mind takes Algebra II before geometry and who takes IPC and chemistry before biology...REDICULOUS! I had to switch schools after my freshman year because everything they were teaching me I had already learned! They need new teachers and a new system for academics, NOT athletics...

  • This school is not so bad. They have a lot to offer if you get involved as a parent. They treat your child as a person and not a number. They are growing and trying to get and keep qualified staff.

  • This is the worst school my children have EVER attended. They have nothing to offer the students. This is the first year after 9 years that they have teachers beyond the substitute teacher status. I feel like it is in much need of qualified staff including those in charge.
