    I have went to this school since I was little. In all my thoughts and point of views. Its bad. I am a junior now and i transferred out of it finally. They favor certain kids over others. They dont let their anyone have an ipod or mp3 out at all nor a phone in the halls or in class. I had an ipod out to text my mother an they got me suspended and their was another girl walking around with her ipod out . They saw it and didn't care. Which is one of the reasons i said they favor some students over others. My brothers car has gotten keyed in the parking lot and the school has done nothing about it. Everyone there is a wannabe and they think they are better then everyone else and its annoying and I don't like it. They are not even up to date with the grading system I'm pretty sure. Long story short this school is a joke. A JOKE!
