Academics are average for the demographic and there are some extra curriculars and an outstanding band program. Parents are working class nd are a little uninvolved.

I attended this school, and I was a part of the programs for gifted students and although the school didnt have a lot of money to invest in the program it was fun and educational. All students learned to play the keyboard, there were a good amount of after school programs including art and music.
