    This school is amazing. Everything about it is perfect for each and every student in the United States. The school is kept well organized and clean 94.99999% of the time(thanks to Mr. Howard) the teachers their are excellent. They will take all the time they need to make sure that a student will graduate EVEN IF IT MEANS PUTTING THEIR JOB IN DANGER! The students their are not the best but a lot of them are determined to see a bright future for their life later on. The best thing I like about the school is the Principle. The Principle would do anything to see all his students graduate. He keeps the school well funded so us students can feel welcomed. He send us to the beach to school picnics he makes sure his teachers get the respect they need and that the teachers give the respect us students expect. He is a very strict person but while at the same time shows lee-way to ALL STUDENTS AND STAFF. If a student gets in trouble not only will he suspend you but he will give you WORK DETAIL. That will ensure to the student to not get into anymore trouble. ?He's like a "3 Strikes and your out" kind-a person"! If you mess up so many times you will be put out of his school permanatly.
