    Looks like the school could use MORE PARENT VOLUNTEERS... Stop complaining Moms/Dads-- and support your kids by being more involved in establishing positive solutions than griping

    When a counselor made an inappropriate conversation with my daughter the school lashed out at my family and tried to have me arrested. Instead of addressing the issue. Needless to say they cannot handle criticism. I was never arrested and reported the incident to the Board of Education. hey did however cause my daughter to endure three days of foster care because of this. It was a traumatic experience for her.

    Administration and staff practices self preservation versus what is good for the students. Conflicting programs allow students to constantly miss core classes and fail while pursuing theater!!??

  • (6 years ago)

    a good portion of teachers are laid back and dont expect much from their students. The idea of a 'challenging' invironment is not introduced until A.P classes or Senior year when students struggle with an unexpected load

  • (6 years ago)

    Security at this school is lax and does not promote an environment of dicipline.
