    I attended this school back in the 70's when my dad was stationed in the area as part of his military service. This school was the arm pit of the public school system back then and the single worst school I ever attended. This school is single handedly responsible for my total disdain of the public school system.

    My daughter has attended this school for 2 years. I see a lot of fights and she has been picked on a couple of times. However the teachers at the school seem fine.
