    In my opinion this school is terrible. I attended from Jr High all the way through High school and it was all in all a terrible experience. The school took on a 'college prep' atmosphere which is ridiculous considering our demographics. The industrial arts program is severely lacking as are other vocational classes. There are very few extracurricular activities offered and only 3 sports. There is very little funding for any programs other than sports. A bunch of us girls tried to get a dance team going and were planning on funding ourselves through the help of our families and our own earnings. The principal vetoed it.
