    this school is a pretty decent school. my child came in struggling with his school work and all the teachers put in that extra work with him to bring him up to state level. my child did exceptionally well on the state board exams and graduated on the honor roll. The teachers are very caring.

    I am a kid and i went to that school and that school is the worse place to go. Fights everyday poor learning and the kids don't even listen to the teacher or the principal. If you go the for a day unexpected you will find out how that school is. So if you want your child to have a good education DO NOT put them in this school.

    This school has hardworking teachers. The staff is dedicated but there needs to be more programs to enhance the overall development of the students. The curriculum should be more diversified to cater to the needs of the students.

    This school is an improving school. It now has a new Principal and Assistant Principal. Once giving a chance I am sure these ladies can help improve the school. However there are not alot of extracurricular activites. There needs to be more parent involvement with in the school. Parents need to attend more Parent Association meetings and workshops that are provided with in the school. If there were more parent involvement and community donations to the school then there could be more programs for the students. The afterschool program that is now presently being used will help to raise the test scores.
