  • This school is considered one of the best in preparing students for college. The administration cares about the students and in turn the students feel empowered and enjoy everything about the school.

  • Does not care for its children. i quote a teacher, "I stopped to care a long time ago. this is just a job." It's sad to hear that from a teacher. It was really a sad day

  • This school waited till things with my son got completly out of control before they contacted us. And it wasnt even the school that called us. It was my husbands commander. This school has NO control over it's students.
