  • this school is very very goog. I am very happy with all its accomplishments. it has progressed in many aspects and is still till this day. As far as the pregnancies go you can not blame that on the school becuase that has alot to do with this generation's mind set and also on your parenting. And it is not only this school with that problem it has also increased in Waco High as well as AJ Moore. a school can keep trying to improve over time not over night and with Mr. Correa and even former principal Mrs. this school has came a long way. I am very excited with the programs that are being offered from MCC and TSTC.Along with all the college credit and dual credit classes.
