  • My child started this school this year and after 6wks, I am disgusted. first of all, the day of orientation, I was walking along the hallways and the walls were filthy. I spoke to an administration about it and told them. I also went to the girls bathroom and it was horrible. Second of all, I have come to realize that girls in this school suffer a large amount of se---- harrassment and no one is stopping it. I sometimes take my daughter to school and I get tired of seeing kids making out right in front of the steps of the school and other places. Why do they not have at least one administrative personel standing outside? I have confirmed reports of kids smoking mar--ua-a in the boys bathroom. I know this for a fact. I have reported this to an official and have heard nothing back. The kids run this school and no one does anything about it. I do have to say, the teachers I have come across seem to be very caring. but then again, this is the beginning of the year and only my daughters first year.
    I am hearing all kinds of terrible stories from other parents. Many of them have tried to fight the system but no one listens so they have moved their kids to other schools. I will consider this myself but if we all do that nothing will change.

  • This school is a school that needs help. The teachers are fine but they need more money to buy the supplies they need. I have found that many of your teachers spend a lot of money out of pocket for the better knowledge of the students. I am thoroughly disgusted at how this school treats its teachers and students. For example the students have 3 minutes to get to class and are written up if they are late. Another example is that the 8th grade students have 2 minutes to get on the bus after school and the rest of the students have as much time as they need. I am sorry to anyone who must attend this school but this school will rule the day they hired a new principal.
