I am sorry but this is one of the WORST schools I have ever seen. The students are rude, security guards are rude, and the teachers generally do not care at all about the students' welfare or education. The education standards are low while the level of drug/alcohol abuse in the school is obviously very ...  Read more

This school is okay. Sometimes i have bad days but its still cool. My favorite teacher is Mr. McClellan, even though he's strict he is cool. He knows how to teach algebra alright.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.
