    I believe that this school has improved over the years and there are many activities to keep the kids involved there are also after school programs that help with different school subjects. There are also many teachers who care about the students and their work.

    I believe that the school is good especially for minority students because they seem to fit in perfectly. There is diversity in the school but there are more Hispanics and African Americans. The schools clubs are also great and the teachers do care about every student.
