    As a parent I feel the staff is not on one accord. I have had several terrible experiences with the office staff. On numerous occasions I have been given incorrect information. I have also had a teacher lie on my child and when asked about it the story changed. My child likes most of her other teachers and her friends and that is the only reason I have not removed her yet.

    7th grade was the best but unnesscessary plasma screens were bought when that money should have been put towards new textbooks. Alot of the textbooks were in bad shape last year and they are only gonna get worse with use. And the cafeteria prices are outrageos. 3.25 per meal??

    I used to go here and it was an ok school. It seemed like they spent money on unescessary things such as a flat screen tv in the lobby that they never use. However the school does have some great teachers. 3/5 stars
