    I attended that school last year. My personal experience was not too good. The teachers were nice but 2 out of 4 teachers I had did not know what they were lecturing. I think that I only passed their class because I got the curriculum online. This school also has very disruptive students. I remember that last years 7th graders (now 8th graders) would do really bad stuff out of school. They would even have their own 'kissing hall'. I think this school is not as bad as Forbush high school but needs a lot of improvement.
