We were told this school was to be feared and that the teaching was sub par...however, when our son enrolled for seventh grade this year we found out first hand how AWESOME this school is. Grades are on line and IF you follow up with your kid and follow his or her grades, you can be successful here. ...  Read more

It's not the greatest school, but it's not horrible either. The school has many gang banger wannabes, and 13-year-old kids who think they are Nortenos. I went to this school half a dozen years ago and whenever I pass by this school that's all I see coming out of the school. This school is not very diverse, ...  Read more

Horrible administration. They talk to students like they are inmates. I have dealt with them as a parent and I watched off to the side as they speak to them with no respect whatsoever. I know this is a tough age but if you can't show respect how do you expect to get respect. The Prinicipal needs to ...  Read more

This school is great academically, but the kids here can be....cruel. But apparently that's how it is everywhere, and it happens all through life. So, anyways, if you try, and turn in all your assignments, 7th grade is easy. I will see how 8th grade is soon....

I love this school. Most teachers are great and fun. The principal is great and knows all of the names in the school in just a few weeks. Most teachers are nice and will be glad to help you but some teachers are not and seem to not want to help you. Overall this school has been great and fun.

Fabulous, caring staff and administration make you feel as though your kid is noticed and special despite large student body. The principal knows every student's name within weeks.

I have been extremely happy with this school and it's staff. My only complaint is that I wish parents could have more hands on in the classrooms but I understand the why not. The school says they need to learn to grow and this is the best time to break away. Hard for a parent to do ;)
