  • Good school in all aspects except science. Teachers are well rounded and enjoy helping students. School prepares students for the next level of education but lacks in the preparation for next level science

  • need better food choices.... younger teachers to make school interesting for us.. we have a good principal... i think we should be able to wear what we want because some people cant afford clothes without tears in them. (HELLO, ITS NIXON) i think we should be able to have our hair any way we want it... we do have a life after school... what we have on our bodies should have nothing to do with the school... but overall is an ok school. :]

  • This school is really trashy, keep your kids away. (...) talks down to parents as if they are students, then she likes to bully them with an ignorant cop named (...). This school is very corrupt, transfer your children to Seguin! I have not met the principal, (...) was acting principal but I can tell you if she is employed there as acting principal I would not trust her with a number 2 pencil let alone a desk job!
