    What a horrible school. The students there lack discipline and are some of the worst bullies ever. My daughter is constantly harassed by some of the female students and the parents are worse! They encourage this bad behavior and could care less if their kids hurt other kids. The staff attempts to help with no avail. My daughter's education is suffering and the actions the staff takes to help is minimal. Please be careful if you plan to enroll you student here.

    I am a student there and it help me because the teachers are stricked. The teachers there care about the students education future and their work. Also if you dontlisten to the teachers you'll get in trouble. Then they have awards assembely field day for the 7th graders promomtion for the 8th graders and this was great. So if you have your son or a daughter i will recomend this school to you kids and parents

    I Love this School. My daughter has improved a lot. The school needs a bigger lot for 800+ students. But the staff is wonderful.

    Dedicated teachers and new leadership are working hard to improve quality education. More parent involvement is much needed at this school.
