    It was pretty rough for me here. I had a lot of bullying problems when I went here. The teachers were nice but I really hated some of the administrators (but this was from 2001-2003). I felt like they disciplined me for problems that were started by other kids like I was always being punished for being the victim of attacks. And there were many.

    This school is horrible. The teachers are awesome but the school doesn't really get involved with education on a personal level as they should. I was a student from 2010-2012. I had alot of social issues and rather than trying to help they would just suspend me (and other students who didn't deserve it) and towards the end of BOTH years that I was there they expelled me. They talk about "No Child Left Behind" but they're leaving all kinds of troubled kids behind.
