  • Worst excuse for a school, ive never been lied to my face soo many times by anybody and it was all done by this school, the sros attacked my son because he got "smart" with them when all did was give them an honest answer. They keep putting him in classes hes not signing up for, and they wont let him transfer out of there to go to eastfield. Very crooked and corrupt school
