    This school was a very bad experience teachers were focused on being "down" with students than the importance of our education. It was a very small school and you had limited access to the things you need like books lockers libraries this school did not supply me with the things I needed in order to prepare for the future. Ata was okay but VERY SMALL you make the best out of every bad situation. PLEASE DONT MAKE THE DECISION TO SEND YOUR CHILD HERE; SEE FOR YOURSELF THE WEBSITE PROVIDES FALSE INFORMATION AND THE PICTURES ARE MISLEADING. IT IS ALSO RARE TO USE THE TECHNOLOGY SO DONT EXPECT STATE OF THE ART COMPUTERS LIKE I DID!

    My first experience at attending this school was pointless and a huge wast of time and tax payers money. Then I began to realize that the teachers treated everyone with respect. If you are on the honor roll then you can expcet a fun field trips. When there are state test coming up they break all of the students up into groups that will help them pass the test. And it doesnt just last for a few days but at least 2 weeks before the test takes place. The school only takes so many students so most of the classes are small and easy to learn. Our uniforms are also pretty awesome!

    Very disorganized office and sub-standard teachers. This school does not even have books!
