    I have viewed all of the previous reviews and there are many truths and some things I have no idea of what they are talking about. Who is 'Mrs. Nancy Jobe'? Now our principal is Ms. Denise Gordon who is doing a fair job. As a student I i feel she can do MORE. I have not seen many of the many promises of the aadministration such as new programs. Ever since this school year started there has been a lack of teachers and other workers. We accomplish many things but not as much as we would with a full dedicated staff. Therefore this school is not at its best. Despite the negative aspects I feel safe and loved at my school because there is an overall caring community.

    The school at one point was a promising project however after the original principal left things began to go down and in 2006 when the school became zoned that was it I have not seen anything to make me feel the school is progressing.

    Hello Besides the learning skills aren't that great they have alot of programs to offer you I would recommend their ROTC program to anyone it is very fun gives you alot of opportunities. A wonderful principal. I believe her name is Mrs. Nancy Jobe. I was told that they got a new principal a male this time. Based on the test scores and the location I would not recommend this school to anyone but the programs and oppertunities I would recommend this school to anyone but do remember that education has more to do with just fun and programs. You go to school to learn not make friends and have to much fun. But have fun in school anyway. If the teacher can make a Science project or school period fun to a teenager then that is the right place for your child!
