    The original principal J Flores left this school. The English and math teachers that last year's Freshman and this year's Sophomores have he'd are ineffective for most of the students. There has not been any substantial support for the students who failed last year's Starr tests or for students with IEPs. There is no PE or extracurricular athletics. We have been very very disappointed with this school. Now that the school has moved lack parking makes it very difficult for parents to visit the school. There are lab facilities but for some reason the chemistry students have not had any labs. Although the school's charter declares a focus on innovation they recently haven't even been able to keep up with the most basic educational requirements. PSAT tests were missed meaning that that class missed the opportunity to qualify for National Merit Scholarships. Some teachers are good but without math and English this school is in trouble.I hope this school can bring but I can't recommend it now.

    Fantastic school. The environment is relaxed enough to let creativity flow while still upholding very high behavioral standards. My son has immensely enjoyed his first year there. Wonderful helpful understanding teachers. The focus on college right from the start is a great thing makes the kids think beyond high school and helps them focus on the future. We're excited by the move to the old Alameda theater building...the school will be even more special!

    Excellent school! The Principal is very involved and knows every student individually and makes sure they are each successful. The teachers truly want the students to succeed and go above and beyond to help them achieve success and graduate with confidence. Academics are excellent.
