    I can't wait till my kid gets out of this school. I don't feel like all of the teacher care about the our kids. They so need a new principle

    This school is a miracle. The things that have happened have made it the envy of the county. Things have never been better and I would call it a meritocratic utopia. Teachers have learned to elevate those that deserve it. There is a vast amount of student ownership and I couldn't be more proud of what he have accomplished.

    I'm 13 in the 7th grade and go to this school. It's a great school and even though we're a big school but our teachers are willing to help us in anyway. I appreciate every single one of them and want to thank them for all that they have done for me. This really is a great school.
