    If you are in the advanced programs you will be fine. If you are not in the advanced programs you are out of luck. In non-advanced classes the students are disruptive and the teachers don't care. Bad students block the stairs for other students. If I had the money my kids would be attending a private school. New building-same problems. The school moved to a new location is now no longer located in the slums of Rocky Mount

    I received a top notch education that set me up for a successful college and professional career. The IB program's rigor and high expectations should be more universal.
