    The administrators and some teachers and counselors at this school do not care about any of the students' education and spend most of their time enforcing dress code. Half the faculty spends their time in the hallways doing absolutely nothing but taunting students they dislike and joking around with their "favorites." I haven't encountered one non-teacher faculty member that wasn't incredibly rude. The teachers let their favorite kids(athletic students mostly)break the rules but then they get furious at anyone else who steps out of line. There are only a few teachers that don't spend every second of their class lecturing kids about learning instead of atually teaching. The athletic students get everything which is unfair because the whole point of school is to get educated. The principal suspends anyone if they violate the dress code too much or dye their hair. And they are lying about the "health science" part there is only one class which teaches you nothing because of the teacher in that class and the rude counselors probably won't even change your schedule if you're not placed in it. If you want your kid to have a good education do not come to this school.

    IF YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED ANY RUDENESS OR CRITICISM FORM THE PRICIPAL I SUGGESTION YOU REPORT IT TO SAISD IMMEDIATELY. SHE WAS THE SAME WAY AT BRACKENRIDGE EXCEPT THE PARENT THEIR WOULD STAND UP FOR THEIR CHILDREN AS YOU SHOULD TOO. DO EVER HAVE YOUR CHILD SENT HOME FOR DAYS OR WEEKS WITHOUT THEIR EDUCATION...SHE HAS NO RIGHT TO PROFILE BECAUSE OF WEALTH OR EDUCATION.

    Teacher's are great when they can teach instead of being babysitters to all the THUGS that are allowed to attend this school even after multiple arrests. Makes learning very difficult. In my opinion The Leadership in this school is lacking.

    THESE TEACHER FEEL THEY ARE MORE IMPORTANT THEN THE STUDENTS. THE TEACHERS ARE MORE CONCERN WITH KEEPING THEIR JOBS AND TALKING ABOUT EACH OTHER AND THE POOREST KIDS. tHE KIDS ARE GIVEN THE BEST THEY CAN CONSIDERING THEIR EDUCATORS LACK OF LEADERSHIP.
