    The school is not half bad. It has teachers that care and gives us excursions too. Plus we get breakfast in the classroom. The school however does need more classes and things to offer their students. This how the school needs improvement. I think personally if the school did that it would do better over all as a school.

    This school is terrible the teachers don't care at all if you ditch class and the kids there are mostly gangmembers and straight up ignorant please go to east it's much better

    I like the way this school goes above and beyond the call of duty. The teachers are very caring. The only concern I have is the culture shock attitude and disrespect my children experience around a lot of the students.
