    I attended this school throughout my sixth and seventh grade years.I didn't get to finish my eighth because I had to transfer. Based on the reviews I've seen I can clearly tell those are the parents that deny their child is being disruptive. The ones that know their daughter or son isn't trying because if they were trying with the help of those amazing teachers they would definitely be passing all their classes. I say this only because I witnessed myself how the teachers try their best and actually make the classes interesting for the students. They don't just read everything right out of their planners or leave the students struggling at first. The school even has after school activities and saturday tutoring sessions. Of course every school has their disruptive students but nothing is impossible. If their parents or guardians actually tried to help them with whatever social issues they have that make them act in an inappropriate matter then the school would be excellent.I didn't even know I as taking advanced classes and it turns out that they make the classes so interesting the students don't even pay attention to how many things they learn in a year.

    The school is doing much better than three years ago. Most of the bad students graduated. And the new staff that they just hired seem to really care about the kids. My sons eight grader's teacher called me alot to keep me informed. she didn't want my son missing school.

    I cant say the schools the best but it aint the worst. Its a little crowded and has noisy hallways but the kids that want to learn learn. It dont really matter how bad the school is just make sure you do ahat you got to do. I am a honored student with a 90% average. The school helped me alot with my self-esteem and my education suprisingly.

    This school is the worst the kids are out of control. My child attends this school and he learns nothing through out the school year so when its time to take a test the kids are bearly passing this school needs better staff and more teachers with smaller closed door class rooms. Dont pick this school for your kids to attend trust me im trying hard to get mines out
