    This has got to be the worst school in the district. If your kids not a straight A and not in sports. They will not like you and they will treat you bad. If your kid is enrolled in Special Education they will not follow your child's IEP. They will try to talk you into taking that out of their IEP. If they don't follow your child's IEP you as a parent have a right to get them sued. To avoid all of this do NOT send your kids to this school. Homeschool your kids or put them in private school if necessary.

    This school has a very bad staff and strict rules. After lunch everyday they make the students help clean up. Isn't that the janitors job? And since this school has a bad overcrowding problem some students might not get the classes they need or want due to them being full.

    This school was great for my daughter but not so good for my son. So I'll give them a middle of the road rating. They have a good AP program.

    This is probably the worst school I have ever been to. Parents and teachers/staff members may not know what goes on around the students but as a student I know for sure what this school is all about. I highly recommend you do not send your child to this school especially if your child is anything other than white. Most of the teachers teaching methods are horrible and you cannot learn clrearly. It's no wonder the test scores are getting lower each year! So I just want to say this school is extremely discriminatory! Please save you child and do not send them to this school!
