My children are adults now and my grandchildren have been students ...  Read more

As a student i've been here for 3 years. Many kids are failing and there's barely any contact with the students, teachers, and administators. I'll say, I admit students here are crazy. They set trashcans on fire, people smoke here, and have a food fight or two. But, in all seriousness, there's also people ...  Read more

"C" grade School with "F" grade administration. The head of the School needs to find another position in the School District where she does not require human interaction. If you are a parent needing to speak with her you'll have a better chance of speaking directly with Florida Governor Rick Scott.

I.think It's an all right school... as for the lady that said girls wear to much makeup well mam that's the parents fault for not monitoring what their children wear to school.. and I don't think It's funny to say that all they do is speak Spanish because everyone is in their right to speak their foreign ...  Read more
