    I went here for a year The teachers are fantastic they work hard and i say kudos to them for working with students here. This schools majority are students of which this is their last chance at graduating got kicked out of regular school or like myself are trying to get ahead in life. I will say in my own expierence the principal is so-so he is a great person but alot goes on without his knowing. The guidance staff are amazing they really know what they are doing and help so so much. there are no team sports or anything of the sort and IMO the schoolwork could have been more challenging I felt like I was doing 4th grade work. but thats my opinion. overall its not a bad school.
