    The principle leadership doesn't even deserve one star. They give the most necessary amount of work to my child. They never ha a holiday off.

    I have gone to this school and it's terrible. I've been to at least ten schools in my life and this is the worst. The students are not challenged at all and most probably can't read past an eighth grade reading level. The teachers are hypocritical nosey and just plain rude. One of the rules is that your phone can't be out the moment you enter the building this wouldn't be such a big issue with me if it weren't for two things 1) If your caught with your phone the teacher takes it for a week weekends and all you can't pay 15$ to get it back and parents can't drive up and pick it up either they keep it. 2) Teachers and staff are ALWAYS on their phones. Also the teachers generally just don't seem interested in teaching their students it's just a job to them. Also the cafeteria is just disgusting. There are janitors but their too busy making freinds and being on their phones to clean. The one good thing about this school is you can have crazy hair pink purple green anything. But please don't make your kid go to this school. They have computers from 1991... seriously. Worst school ever.

    This school has some nice classes but there are also severe problems. The new principal is very strong handed and seems to rule by fear. Several teachers have left involuntarily and been shown the door. It has left many of my daughter's friends sad. There is almost no parent involvement and the building is a mess. The budget cuts have had a terrible effect on the school.

    Its a Great School. It still needs some improvement with the new principal and all but it is wonderful.
